im having a problem trying to install a satellite system but i cant seem to drill through the wall with the drill bit im using it only goes so far then it goes reserve on me. Do i need a special drill bit to drill with the wall? or does any drill bit work?
When you pull the bit out of the wall does it have a light colored powder on it ?
Is the bit rounded off and not sharp any more ?
If yes, you are probably hitting a Concrete Block ( some call them Cinder Blocks ). They are usually 8 inches thick for outside walls.

that's going to be your safest bet.

Each type has it's own preferred method of drilling.
A masonry bit doesn't go well when you hit wood or steel, and vice versa.
Take a look into the hole you drilled and see what you hit.
