I would like to connect 2 side by side buildings with a wireless bridge connection. I am looking for a dedicated wireless to wireless connection.  Can anyone suggest a product or Linux router solution that I might be a able to do with.

    Do you just need to provide Layer 2 or Layer 3 connectivity between the bulidings?

    What is your distance between the buildings?

    I have used two of their older outdoor wifi access points in bridge mode and it works perfectly.  Doesn't matter what OS you are running.  Just make sure you don't have duplicate IP address, and don't let the bridges act as DHCP servers.
