    hello together,

    i want to connect 2 buldings via 2pcs of WAP54G configured in bridging mode.

    The 2 router are placed behind a window. distance about 200-300m in an estate. (fair view)

    is this "project" practicable????

    thx for your help

    I just got done with close to the same thing.. using a WRT54G in 1 house and linksys range expander (same idea) to bridge the connection to another. this was about 100m so if it is a not to restricted view then you should be able to connected without much of a problem.

    thx for response.

    is the WRT54G the better solution than 2 of WAP54G???

    And what is the "range expanger"?

    is is possible to modify the outgoing single - to boost it???

    thx

    You should have a look at this: http://www.genslernet.com/hyperwrt/
    If the link between the 2 buildings dont work, you could make those "antennas": http://www.freeantennas.com/projects/template2/
    But if you want to be more professionnal things, you could buy directonnals antennas (connector for WRT: RP-TNC [RP=Reverse Polarity]): You can use dishes but I think it's a bit too much then you can use Yagi antennas; they are quite cheap and have a good gain. Then configure the router to use only one antenna to send and receive.
