    I live on a farm in the middle of no where, and about to get wildblue satellite service, but I would like to link 3 buildings together in a wireless network and have wireless too for users.

    Below are the plans... but I was wondering if I should just get bridges for the 2 other buildings?... The network won't really be used for heavy file transfers, just for web and light use.

    Will this work?

    --------------------------------------

    Here is a inexpensive network design that will work well and is easy to use. Upgrade all the APs with Satori Firmware so the radios can be turned up. This design does not include the Cat6 cable and jacks and stuff. Omni Antenna is necessary for the Main House and optional for the secondary sites but would be nice. They would increase the price by $100 if you got 3 instead of 1.


    'Main House' (Broadband Internet connection)

    Linksys WRT54GS $70 in AP Mode
    8 DB Omni-Directional Antenna $99
    Linksys Power Over Ethernet Adapter $35
    A small switch with enough ports <$75 (Linksys Metal 8
    Port $50, very nice)
    A spot to mount it inside and an antenna cable LMR400
    $50

    $310


    'Office'

    Linksys WRT54GS $70 in client mode
    8 DB either Yagi or Patch Antenna $50
    Linksys Power Over Ethernet Adapter $35
    A spot to mount it inside and an antenna cable LMR400
    $50

    $185


    'Folks House'

    Linksys WRT54GS $70 in client mode
    8 DB either Yagi or Patch Antenna $50
    Linksys Power Over Ethernet Adapter $35
    A small switch with enough ports <$75
    A spot to mount it inside and an antenna cable LMR400
    $50

    $250


    $740 Total

    You can also set all the APs to allow you to manage
    them remotely.

    ------------------------

    Is there a more simple way to do this?
