Setting up a 'high-powered' wireless network for a city block
Posted on 2013-01-23
Hi All - I am wanting to set up a wireless network/internet access for my residential block. We have alot of low-income families that need internet service, but cannot afford the monthly service.
I have seen on-line articles about community projects that do this, but all seem to be with antennas on top of buildings. I was hoping to do it with simply a modem from my desktop.
Q: Are all modems built alike (I don't think so)? Are there any that are more powerful with longer ranges than others?
Other information: my building, and probably the location of the modem is exactly in the middle of the block, and the block is .1 miles long (528 feet).
Thank you very much!
