Hello, I'm new to this group, it seems like here I can find the answer to my question, a lot of people with lots of knowledge. At work I have to setup 2 outdoor APs. The first one I already set it up like this but it seems the setup is not optimal using WDS because it looses signal speed each time the signal is repeated.
The purpose of both setups is having internet access for at least 10 laptops in a half a mile radius.
Internet ---- WRT54G )) (( WRT54GS )) (( WRT54GS )) (( WVC54G
This setup is around 200 feet from one end to the other, the setup is almost all outdoor, the second router is in a hangar with big doors open, and the third router is in a trailer.
It works but it seems that it is not optimal as it is, using the WDS, when I use the camera it hogs the internet conecction.
I was thinking of something like this.
Internet ---- WRT54G --- Amplifier ---- Antenna )) (range of 500 feet) (( Laptops, WVC54G, etc.
The second setup is a mobile setup. We go places on a convoy of 6 trucks and we want to have internet access in all 6 trucks. One of the trailers pulled by one of the trucks will have internet and we want to broadcast the signal in that trailer, would that same setup work? That one has to have a range of at least 1 mile. Money is not a problem as long as it is not too much if it is feasible of course (~500$)
Thanks a lot in advance.
