    Please ignore the wrong terms

    What I am tring to do is extend our wireless enviroment from one church building to another about 700 feet away.

    Currently installed is dsl to a wrt54g and cat 6 to another wrt54g in the far ends of a building. This has been working well for the past year.

    I was thinking to reach the other building I would add another wrt54g in the attic and connect an external antenna to one of the ports. Then over in the other building do just the oposite (antenna to wrt54g)

    Will this work or can someone please point me in the right direction

    That will work.. But you're going to need to put one of the WRT54G's into a client mode.. I'm not sure if you can do that with the stock firmware.. But it is possible with one of the non-stock firmwares.

    I'd recommend using DD-WRT 22r2 for the 2 routers that will be talking wirelessly. I recently setup a WRT54G to WRT54G wireless bridge connection and it works great. Also, since it is a far distance you can turn up the transmit power on both routers (with DD-WRT) to make sure you get a clean signal.
