Remote Imaging

Hi Folks.
I want to set up my imaging control approximately 30 yards from my rig outdoors.  Power is not a problem but telescope control with various software and file storage I would like to do remotely.  Someone mentioned a wireless hub setup.  Does anyone have any suggestions.
Thanks for your help

I have a TP-Link N450 (TL-WR940N) wifi router in my observatory.  It has 3 antennas for maximizing range, and I get strong signal from inside my trailer connected to the observatory about 50' away.  Something like that with 802.11n should be sufficient to get you remotely connected and running your setup.
