I'm assuming that Brian's friend is using a Wifi enabled laptop or that Brian would fit a Wifi dongle to a desktop machine as required.
The device in the house must have an aerial which can be mounted in a reflector (no dongle I've seen does) in order to get the additional gain needed to (hopefully) get good communication to the chalet ...
