Hi anyone, I have a remote piece of property a mountain between me and
the city. I am only in the planning stage, and I am working this out
legally, so no real issues here. Plus it only about 5 miles. So my
question is regarding ap to ap setup.
Whats the difference between ap client and ap bridge? What I want is:1) on the mountain put up a passive repeater (yagi/parabolic,pringles
whatever). One to the city and the other to my property.2) on my property have an antenna, which is attached to a local AP on
my property, pointing to the mountain.
So what I want to do is have my laptop communicate via wireless to my
local AP, and any other computers I allow, (preferably doing dhcp, nat,
firewalling, etc for my side), and have my local AP acting as a client
to the city AP passing along my traffic as if I was in the main
building in the city.
What do I use for an AP on my property that will act as a normal AP for
my laptop, but also act as client for the AP in the city? And if I
have the local antenna attached to the local AP (pointing to the
mountain), do I also need
another antenna for my local communications?
Thanks so much,
