Thanks in advance for any help. I live in an area that does not currently provide any form of high speed internet, yet just a few miles down the road there is a town that is provided with high-speed internet by way of cable access. I have relatives that live in the town with access, and I spoke with them about either getting dual cable internet accounts at there house or just sharing there internet access with me by way of a Point to Point Wi-Fi link. The distance between both houses is around a straight 7 miles. My question is has anyone here tried this, or know of anyone who has and have they been very successful with it? Also, what equipment would everyone recommend? This is the equipment that I was considering buying, and trying it out. For the router, I was thinking a standard Linksys WRT54G hooked direct to the cable modem with one of the router antennas connected directly to a 24dBi Parabolic Grid Antenna shooting the signal to another 24dBi Parabolic Grid Antenna hooked direct to a Senao 200mw 802.11b PCMCIA card into my laptop. I have heard the the Parabolic Grid antennas are a pain to aline, but I am not sure what other kind of antenna to look into. I have also read of people sending Wi-Fi signals over uhf, but have not been able to find much information on it. If anyone has any suggestions on equipment or on the matter in general please feel free to post, and thanks for the help.
