I would like to connect a user to a company network. The user lives approx 175 metres from the factory and has direct line of site. It is not possible to run a cable from the factory to the house. How would i go about this and what specific equipment would i use. Speed is not a hugh issue.
SBS 2003 and desktops/laptops Win XP.

Thanks in Advance

The best solution would be to use a bridge at each location. What kind of a budget are you looking for?

The cheapest one to be honest, the user won't be working with critical information.

Because I can't see the location, do you think the antenna would need to be roof high or are there facing windows where an indoor antenna might work (not cars or trucks driving by?.

The equipment would need to be mounted externally but not necessarily at roof level.
