I have a situation where the main house has Comcast Internet as their ISP. We have a cottage on the property thats at least 300 to 400ft away from the house.

Both PC's are running Windows XP

At minimum, I am suggestion getting a Wireless N router in the house and a Wireless N adapter for the PC at the cottage. I'm hoping it will pick up the signal. I will do my best to get both devices near a window with no restrictions in between.

Does this sound feasable or does someone have a better idea? Where just trying to avoid paying for another Comcast cable run and monthly expense to the back of the property
