Question, I use products from http://www.engeniusworks.com but I am open to others
I have a situation
4 model homes each are around 10' appart
first home as internet connection with a wireless router

second home I'd like to set up a directional wireless bridge to get the internet connection accross, then put a LAN switch on it. On this LAN switch I'd like to add a wireless access point so visitors can get to the internet, It will also have a CAT5e plugged into it and wil run to the third home

Third home will also include a LAN switch, the LAN switch will include a wireless access point for that home and a wireless bridge that will be connected to the forth home

Forth home will have a bridge connecting to the bridge on the third home
it wall also include a LAN switch that will have another wireless access point

any suggestions on which bridges to use to do this?
thanks

it seems you are going to connect the four homes in a chain mode, whcih is not recommended as any failure of wired switch or wireless bridge coudl cause the network behind the failed spot also disconnected.

better use a star mode in which all homes connect to the central internet connection via wireless bridge and use a swtich for the LAN in each home.
