Hi @Meweaverbee ,
Thanks for raising this to us. What type of NBN service is available in the area? NBN Co. only allows one service per address. If there is an existing TPG-NBN service on the main house we recommend to use an Ethernet cable or Additional Router as an extension.
I live on a property in a rental which is a second dwelling. I want to get NBN but my house is not council approved. It also a fair distance from the owners house. Is there some way i can get NBN. We can't get any wireless so we are a bit stuck.
When you say "can't get any wireless", do you mean you have no mobile phone reception?
Otherwise, fixed wireless might have been an option.
I think 400m might be beyond the ability of a wifi booster/extender esp. since the other end has to be able to transmit back 400m. (Going through a forest, the random placement of trees would equate to some number of walls in a house that the signal would have to get through.)
Last resort might be satellite, eg. Sky Muster (ironic because that is an NBN service and they won't provide a second service to your address). Several providers have plans.
Is your mobile phone the only one in your house?
Does the Cell Fi only support a single mobile phone or is it locked to Aldi Mobile?
Regarding the issue of a second service, do you know what type of NBN connection is in the main house? You can find out by checking the address at nbn.com.au.
You would have to ask a Sky Muster provider about a second service. There is only a dish, 2 cables and a satellite modem to install. You might be able to pay for these yourself so they may not care about a second service. You then need a wifi router and the provider might include one in the plan
