I am in an apartment on the 2nd floor. I need to pick up a signal from across the road and then two or three houses over. What are my best options for a decent priced antenna for a mac?

Hello,

I recommend that you look for Directional (Yagi) antennas. Something like this.

Alternatively, installing DD-WRT and upping the TX power (still using the omnidirectional antennas) could be enough.

Also, you can read up on repeaters.

Regards

You should use a directional yagi antenna like this - https://www.tupavco.com/products/yagi-wifi-antenna-24ghz-17dbi-angle-h25-v24-outdoor-directional

Can technically transmit and receive wifi with this.
