Hello!

I'm having a networking trouble in my new house. My main router is the ASUS RT-N18U, and here is the scenario that I have:
  1. Current: Use a TP LINK TL-WA860RE to extend the range, but I find the performance is poor after several links (i.e. one TL-WA860RE connects to another TP Link router, which then connects to another TP link router).
  2. Run a 40 meters cable outdoor (this house don't have any ventilation, so running it indoor will require drilling through multiple walls). I have once run a 20m cable through my old house, but not outdoor. I have concerns that outdoor cable might not last long due o sunlight and rain.

Which one would be best in long term situation? Thanks in advance!

Non-professional opinion......

You're going to lose quality with every wireless hop. Ideally, you would want a hardwired connection from the router/modem to each wireless access point.

They make outdoor rated cable that should not degrade significantly for years. You can also run it in conduit to protect it.
