    Just trying to get some clarity.....wifi inside a wooden shed. Omni Antennas (may need to add a directional. 12 Feet from the garden shed is a wood fence with a about 2 Feet of shrubs/tree branches, etc on both sides of the fence.

    How much or how little does branches, leaves, etc affect wifi signal degradation.....
    Pretty dense fenceline - shrubs/shrub leaves, etc

    I am using a directional antenna to fill up a different spot outdoors - shooting through a perimeter edge of bamboo. Decent 72dbm (usable enough)

    The answer would be a lot depending on how dense that they are.
