point to point wireless connection

Hi,
I would like to establish a wireless connection from work to home - around 700m with clear line of sight. I want to be able to disconnect our 3MB ADSL2 connection at home (save some $$ - currently I am spending around $90 per month on this connection) and run through the 8MB connection at the office.

We run a combination of wired lan and an AP at the office, SBS 2008 Pre network, Smoothwall and a cisco 2800 router which belongs to our ISP and maintains our connection. Our phone system runs VOIP through this connection.

I want to be able to a) connect to the office network as if I am sitting in the office (without having to use RWW), b) run our home phone VOIP in a similar way as we do in the office, and c) browse the net via the office connection.

Value for money is the goal here, ie I would like to have a computing experience from home as close as possible as the one I have physically sitting in the office, without it costing me an arm and a leg.  

Not sure where to start with configurations, or hardware, and would greatly appreciate any assistance on offer.

James

Here are some long range wireless devices, but I don't know the costs:

Of course you will have to make sure you lock it down or you will have a lot of other people trying to share you connection too.

Thanks for that ... I didn't specify, but was specifically looking for solutions that available in Australia, and someone to help by putting things in basic terms ... "and point a you need x, and at point b you need y" etc.

I have got on to an Australia supplier, and have got a good idea of what I am after now. He uses google earth to look at the location and has recommended a solution.
