I have recently been bequeathed by our local phone company with a low-bandwidth DSL connection - 1.5mbs - after ten years of waiting for "high speed" service in our area.
I have two buildings about 400' apart serviced by the same incoming phone line (telco provided connection, common to both buildings).
I'd like to have the DSL service available in both at once, but realize I cannot put two DSL modems on the same line.
So... can I reasonably run a line-of-site WIFI link between the buildings (400'?), or should I run wires (quite inconvenient, but possible... just not pretty, with plumbing, wires, etc in the ground). Is there a simple ethernet bridge that'll run 1.5mbs over a buried UTP line that far? What about when(if) they ever upgrade to 6mbps?
