WIFI in Garden Cabin

I have a shipping container office in my back garden. Once the door is closed I am not able to get any WIFI signal in there.
Is there anything I can do to get WIFI in there?
Sorry if this is a really silly question that has a simple answer.
Thank in advance

Hi
The metal shipping container is a very goid Faraday cage. It will block all radio signals including WiFi.
I would recommend running outdoor grade ethernet cable to the shipping container and using a WiFi access point inside the container.
I have an old Plusnet router as an access point in the summer house fed by outdoor grade ethernet cable.

If you have power in the container, consider Ethernet over Power adapters - see Devolo products.
