    Hi!

    My cousin lives in a country town where there's no adsl and no 56k availability (28.8 baby!). He wants to purchase an IDSL and *share* it's bandwidth and cost with his office, home, friends house etc.

    Assuming they're all line of sight, and all within about 1km from each other, then articles like this http://www.penmachine.com/techie/kitswifi_2003-08.html make me think all I need is to point these tube aerials from one station to another, with wifi routers at each station, and they're laughing.

    Has anyone got any experience or tips on the matter? I figure I firstly need to find a 802.11g router that will allow me to plug in an aerial. That seems to knock out the Billion. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
    Andy

    Look this kind of stuff up on google, with searches for San Francisco and Aspen. Places that have done long distance wifi.

    Tsunami QuickBridge 60 can get 3 to 6 miles. I would go with Tsunami stuff, best in the market I think.
