I have two houses, no.1 has internet, no.2 doesn't, its about 200 meters between them, an open field, no obstacles.

Is it even possible to extend the signal from house 1 to house 2?

Since house no. 2 is more of a guest house that isn't used that often I was hoping to not have to get a second internet subscription.

Would running fiber underground be possible? You could probably get the hardware for ~300$ (this + 2X this), and just add a wireless router at the other end.

(Not sure if that particular cable is safe for outdoor, underground use, it's just one of the first hit when I search 200m fiber optic networking cable.)
