I'm investigating the feasibility of building myself the capability to utilize the 'Wireless DSL' service that is being offered to the citizens of a town about 2 miles away from where I live.
Unfortunately, I do not have line-of-sight to the town water tower where my house is located, but I do own land that is high enough (with the use of a tower) which can 'see' the water tower.
Hopefully the ASCII art will paint the picture:< - 3-4 km ->
Municipal_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _Solar- powered Tower Repeater / / / / (500 m) / / / / House
What I am looking for is recommendations people have on the various bits I'll need to assemble/acquire for this to happen.
Constraints: There is no power available at the repeater site - any solar powered gear people like? A tower will be needed at the repeater site - again, any towers people like (20-40 ft)
Will any hardware be required at the house? we'll have wireless notebooks as clients there.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance, Duane
