Help with receiving WiFi connection

Hello,

I live in a relatively remote location and am trying to get an internet connection for my home. Virgin Media, BT, PlusNet etc. are not able to provide a service to me due to this and they are not willing to install a line.

There is a small building with a free WiFi hotspot close-by that serves quite a high-speed connection but unfortunately cannot receive a signal from it when at home.

I contacted the owner of the hotspot and received permission to use any equipment to bring that connection into my home by wireless signals, however am unsure how to do so.

I have a vision as to what I hope is possible, but I doubt it will be. If not, then could anyone please recommend the next best thing to it, as a connection is quite important for me and my family.

As I said previously, I have permission from the connection owner and also would not use it for heavy use (downloading large files etc.).

My vision: Click here for image (the encryption part is not necessary, but is preferable)

Thanks in advanced.

If you're unable to get this issue sorted, then as a last resort, have you considered mobile broadband using a WiFi gadget like this? The top-up charge for 2GB is £13 and the data is available for 30 days.

.......forgot to mention, make sure you use the mobile operator's network coverage checker before you buy just in case the signal is poor where you are.
