    I also use a wireless access point and they are a great solution for extending your network to where you can't run cable. Mine is a d-link.

    Update. I got home from work yesterday, it seems my wife had had enough. I have a serious hedge trimmer, she has never used. Let's just say the line of sight between the two trendnets was drastically improved. I did reset everything, and boom super solid. I'd still like better coverage down there, so something like Jeff posted above (and others) is probably in order.

    I kinda wonder with all the hoops you've jumped through if you shouldn't have just wired a connection down there at some point.

    I should and I have a conduit running from the house to the boat house. Believe it or not, the biggest pain here is getting to the start of the conduit at the house.....

    You can trench in outdoor rated ethernet. I seriously considered it for my shed and would do it for sure if my carrier speed limit wasn't 25Mbps. That's the best I can get out here and I can put it everywhere on my property with wireless for now. But, if the internet fairies drop in with some serious speed, I'll have to cable it up.

    The powerline adaptors are a good option to at least try. You likely don't need gigabit speeds though to stream audio.
