wireless 250 yards

This is for a small client of mine  situation: building 1 is a small office wired PCs and a cable modem for internet.  Building 2 is a garage and has only 2 PCs which are networked no internet.  Building 2 needs internet ONLY to update their internet based software periodically.  The buildings are about 250 yards apart, building 2 is on a hill and is about 20ft higher then building 1, both buildings are in view of each other.  Building 1 is a late 60s early 70s small brick building, building 2 is a steel garage.  Is wireless from Building 1 to building 2 a solution?  If so what hardware would be needed, I can figure out the price for the hardware. Or would it just be easier to go with another connection from the ISP?  I would also need the best software package that would only allow certain domains or ip address to be accessed in building 2.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi there

set up a point to boint wireless network last week using two Netgear WG102's with the ANT24D18 anteners.

It worked like a dream.

Neil - what was the distance of your 2 Netgear WG102s, was there a clear line of sight?

Appart they where 150m to 200m with the big aerials.  Access points were mounted in Weather proof boxes with 1m antena cables.  We also used a PoE switch to simplify cabling.  Clear lin of site was established.

Have you tried it yet or are you thinking about it?

Hi Neil,
No I was wondering if the cost was worth it, I could just get another line installed from the ISP at the garage.  I don't need wireless issues and occur a lot of cost doing this -  just making sure it worked after spending the $.  Running an Ethernet cable isn't really practical from building to building.  Thanks for the input.

Depends on the speed you need I suppose.  The whole thing cost £400 to £500 plus labour.
