    Could someone point me to a URL that would explain the terminology and
    hardware needed to take a wireless internet feed from a telephone
    company antenna to an antenna on our electronics building, and put the
    internet signals on an existing cable TV network of about 250 users in
    a gated community. The cable company will not be supplying internet
    for some time. The phone company offers wireless broadband now.

    The phone company will supply coax from their antenna to our
    electronics building and presumably some interface box. We own the
    cable television system in the community, currently taking a feed from
    the cable company.

    I've tried searching for such information but I don't know enough to
    ask the right questions.

    I like this one, let's see.

    Wireless AP connected to Broadband Head-end equipment which either has an
    internal system for combining the signals onto the cable or uses an external

    Basically you are becoming your own broadband provider. Might want to figure
    out what you budget is, this isn't going to be cheap.

    Something in Cisco's uBR line should do it. Another option, if all the phone
    lines run back through a central location AND the distances aren't too long,
    is the Cisco LRE (runs a lot less then uBR)
