I'm one of the unfortunate people that lives in a rural area without high speed internet access. My dial up is 22K, which gives me ample time to get other things done while I surf. I could get a satellite system but this is $60/ month with up front costs. I have a Flyin J truck stop about 4.5 miles from my home and they charge $200/year for500Kbs. I was wanting to find out if anyone had any experience in using a antenna to access WIFI at a distance like this. I actually have a 10ft satellite dish I could use but don't know if the mesh is to wide for a 2.4Ghz wave length. I live on flat ground with some tree lines and buildings between me and the truck stop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
