Do you have unobstructed line of sight? If so, standard equipment with good high-gain antennas on each end, mounted as high as possible.

as far as equipment, what would be suggested ? Netgear RangeMax or Netgear Prosafe line ? Linksys ?

Thanks for all the help

As I said before, standard equipment should be fine with good high-gain antennas. For the outdoor antennas I suggest:

  • Hawking HAO14SDP Hi-Gain 14dBi Outdoor Directional Antenna Kit


  • Hawking HAO14SD Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit

Any decent wireless access point (or router configured as an access point) and wireless client bridge with external antenna connectors can be used, but I'd personally stick with one vendor if you're buying new; e.g., Hawking HWBA54G Wireless-G Multi-Function AP/Bridge (which supports both modes).
