I have two Linksys WRT54G routers. One is hooked up to my desktop via cable and to my wireless Internet provider. I use several other laptops in the office and the system works fine. My problem is, I need Internet to another building about 300 ft away, but there are two trees in the way. I can mount an outdoor antenna under a deck about 25-30 ft away that will get under the branches and have a direct LOS to the other building.
Here is what I'm proposing. Mount the second router, configured as an AP, to the antenna support and connect to the first one via cat5 cable. On the other end I would simply attach another antenna to the existing PCI wireless card in that desktop by a 6 ft pigtail and aim it out the window at the other one. Both antennas would be cantennas.
Will this work? TIA
