I have been fighting with getting Wifi out to my shop building for 
years.  It's about 100 feet from the main house, and it's a metal pole 
barn so I have to have the Wifi receiver in a window.  I am about ready 
to run a hard wire out to the building and was wondering if anyone had 
any experience with direct burial CAT 5 or 6 wire.  I would probably run 
it in a shallow trench and the total run including snaking it around the 
house and out to the shop would probably be about 150 feet at the most.  
I would probably just jam in into a shallow slot in the dirt cut with a 
shovel or spade.
