    What is the distance ? This will affect wifi / ethernet / powerline choices. If you have a duct, outdoor CAT5 would be most reliable as you could put a wifi AP in the Log Cabin.

    how far is it? ours is about 15m from the house and I moved one of our mesh-WiFi units to a window facing the cabin which was sufficient to get signal to it.

    For the past couple of years I've used point to point directional WiFi (same frequencies as normal WiFi but very narrow beam) and they've been very reliable but are limited (in my application) to about 100Mb/s, so now that I have gigabit fibre I'm looking to upgrade to cables.

    If you can be bothered run cat 6 cable, use either outdoor rated in a duct or the armoured stuff suitable for direct burial. There are several cable and connector types and it's a bit of a headwreck tbh, but once it's set up that'll be the simplest and fastest solution.
