That would depend what turbulence is in between. Wall, electric devices, trees, electrical lines, etc.

I don't think a wireless booster will help in this situation.

'Powerline' or 'Homeplug' mains network adaptors may be the solution to your issue. They utilise existing cable in your mains circuitry, and as such make it a very useful alternative if you need to reach distances.

Have a look here:Netgear Powerline Range

I hope this helps.
