Any wifi router would do really, unless you are talking a really long seperation between you and the scope. Otherwise, install TeamViewer on both computers, make note of the ip address on the computer near the scope. When you connect to the wifi, it should be on the same network (router probably will be 192.168.1.1) so look for the scope computer to be 192.168.1.2 and the computer near you to be 192.168.1.3 (as an example). It is pretty easy setup to do.

Sorry, but I'm married with 2 small kids.  I love to go outside to get some peace and quite after they all go to bed.  I'd never be able to use a telescope app while the kids are playing Angry Birds!
