    1. If you are in Pakistan you can buy local made directional antenna.Those are cheap and work well.
      If you prefer performance you can use TP-Link or other branded antenna.
      Trees buildings Wireless link they all create interference you can avoid it not completely by choosing more clear path changing wireless channel to other which is not being used by other wireless devices and using 802.11n which give more range less interference.

    1. Yes but AP or server computer must be on to access it some WiFi adapters sport soft AP mode that allow one computer to share its internet with any device through WiFi.

      Computer with Soft AP Mode must connect to internet through wire(LAN) and that computer share wire(LAN) internet with other devices using Soft AP mode.
