Are you looking for the cheapest route, or the best route? I currently have a setup that I shoot WiFi for 2.7 miles, but it takes extra hardware of course. You are at your limit for a CAT5 run at 300ft, so if you ran cable you could not guarantee reliability.

I would not use another router in your situation. It would likely be in the same general location as the first one and not really help.
