    Ok, first of all, I have read as much as possible on this forum to try to figure something out. However IMO, having to shoot specific distances makes a big diffrence, which is y I have created this thread. I have a WRT54G version 3 with the latest stock firmware. The post is long, but I wanna make sure I am as specific and give as much info as possible, so bear with me. ;)

    Now for some background... I am in Louisiana, which got hit good from Hurricane Katrina. My grandparents lived in New Orleans, and I live about a half-hour north of New Orleans. My aunt lives down the street from me, where they do not have cable or internet. My grandparents parked their trailer in my aunt's driveway, and I wanna get them some of my net connection.

    There is approx. 1500 feet between our houses, maybe a little more, maybe a little less. I want to shoot a 802.11b or g link down the street. With the stock firmware preferably, and an aftermarket antenna or two, I wann try to use WDS or something and a pair of WRT54Gs to make the link.

    I could use specific antenna models or specific firmwares which would yeild the best link for prefearbly the cheapest possible to make this link work. I'd say I have a max budget of 250ish, but I am willing to go a bit higher if neccesary to make this work. Thanks in advance.
