Sup experts, here is what Im trying to do.
I need to run a wireless antenna to the roof. I am looking at a 75 ft run to shoot wireless over to another building.

Has anyone tried this? Will the signal degrade at that length?
I have a linksys wap54g sitting in a box I wanted to use.

Thoughts, concerns, anyone done this?
Let me know thanks!

75' is a long way for the sort of signal level a WAP54 puts out. Even with a stout low loss cable like LMR400 I doubt you will get good results. A better solution would be to locate the WAP54 in a weatherproof box at the antenna location.

Yep. Search the web for articles about this. Usually people go with power over the cat5 (POE). Don't expect the WAP to last forever if you are in an area with extreme climate.
