Wherein it’s sunny out so I’m trying something dumb with my Wi-Fi. Technically line of sight?

It’s a bare sliver of line of sight up a flight of basement stairs and out a window and I needed a folding chair and a rock but I’m getting 300Mbps according to Speedtest.net

@lmorchard eeeek

I have a hard enough time with drywall in a two story house and having a small area just on the deck that wifi works
