Hey guys, Even through my decent work with wireless networking, I still can't seem to get the whole distance thing figured out. I am going to be building a wireless network for the Boy Scout Camp I work at. (For those that want to get a visual lay of the land to help me the GPS location is 30Â°34'31.58"N, 89Â°21'33.10"W) Those coordinates are where my sat modem, and primary router are. In this camp, there is fairly dense woods, although it could be said that I almost have NLOS to these locations. This summer I somewhat pulled off this feat with just a 1 watt and a .5 watt amp and a couple of 7 db omni antennas. This only supplied 1 additional buiding other than the Admin, which has the sat modem in it, net. The connection was unstable and dropped off frequently. In the Admin building I am going to be using a second router to actually do the wireless network from. Directly north (.2 miles) of the Admin building (the building I gave the location of) is another building that I will be wanting to give wireless access to. To the southeast of the admin building also .2 miles away is another building that will need wirless. Finally, a set of 3 cabins .3 miles southwest of the admin building also needs access. What I was figuring on doing was to use (4) 1 watt amplifiers and a series of antennas to shoot the signal where it needs to get. I would use a 1 watt amp and a 15 db omni-directional antenna at the admin building to distribute the main line around. At each of the 3 reciever locations I would stick a 1 watt amp and a Backfire 14 dBi Reflector Antenna pointed at the omni. Attached to these amps would be routers running DD-WRT in client bridge mode. However, if I could pull off WDS to just repeat the signal in these buildings, that would be very preferable, but I'm not sure how having a high gain directiona antenna on one side and the stock rubber duck antenna on the other side would work. In conclusion, will this plan work? Am I constructing an overkill network? Will the omni that I am planning to stick at the Admin building be able to get a signal far enough back to the directional antennas. Thank you in advance for any and all help that people can provide.
