because i got bored i decided to run wifi up to our top paddock 1.8km away (no obsticals)  i had searched around and was going to set it up in our paddock bomb 

using the following items off ebay

router: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Portable-Wireless-NAS-Mini-Router-Car-Home-Mobile-Hotspot-Wifi-USB-WAN-LAN-Port/183461237279?hash=item2ab724521f:g:f5wAAOSw0BtbsErR:rk:8:pf:0

adapter: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1-x-Female-USB-to-Male-Ethernet-RJ45-Connector-Adaptor-NEW-N005/290747368177?hash=item43b1e4c2f1:g:C~AAAOSwEK9Tx6cU:rk:6:pf:0 

antenna: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2-5KM-High-Gain-Outdoor-Waterproof-150M-USB-Wireless-Wifi-Adapter-Tide-AU/283228953687?epid=905458294&hash=item41f1c2dc57:g:PhgAAOSwKA5b0p3R:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true

It wont work with the listed equipment.
You would likely need something like a Ubiquiti PowerBeam AC

CPU: 2x E5620 - GPU: 2x GTX660 - RAM: 64gb DDR3 ECC - Mobo: Z800 OEM - Storage:1TB WD Green - 256gb - Micron C400 250gb - 850 EVO - 512gb 850 PRO
Monitors: 3x HP ZR2440W - Keyboard: G710 MX Blue - Mouse: MX Master

Keep up the good tone and stay classyxD

Well it "might" work, but Ubiquiti will be WAY more reliable and faster as they use a modified WiFi protocol that is optimised for outdoor use.

Router:  Quotom-Q555G6-S05 running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen VDSL (~74Mbit) + VOXI 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)
