router to router setup can it be done?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Michael Bauer, Jul 5, 2005.

  1. I have a frend that lives 220 yards from me we would like to set him up to
    connect to my resources. The question is would we be better off using my
    wireless g broadband router at my end and a linksys wusb54g device at his
    end or use Two wireless g broadband routers. there are trees between us and
    2/3 of the year we cannot see each others home. also if I use the routers
    will using firmware that allows me to boost the xmit power be of any help?

    Two Routers can not talk one to the other unless they are WDS Routers (The Linksys as
    is, is not WDS).
    220 yards needs directional Antennae and Clear line of sight.
    You need to be able to install directional Antennae on the two devices, and place them
    above the tree line.
