Default bridging 2 buildings 500ft apart


I am new to this, please bear with my ignorance.
cable modem to a d-link 614 router. I was thinking of putting a radiolabs booster antenna(500mw). 150 ft run to antenna location on roof, unobstructed view to destination. some kind of antenna there with a 75ft run to destination computer. It has ethernet built in, I hope to use that input for antenna. windows xp pro on both computers.

Is this scenario plausible?

May be, just make sure that your match the impedances properly to get maximum energy transmission. Also, don't forget from one building to another you will have air, which will attenuate the signal tremendously, so you have to account for that free space losses (around -86dB at 2.4GHz), you must also account for the losses on the transmission and receiving lines, etc. Now there could be some issues with delays as well as your destination computer is talking to the d-link base station, that's is inherent to the portocol and I'm not very sure of the implications.

I would say try it, but remember to check your interfaces well from the booster into your d-link router, you don't want to burn anything. Also when dealing with antennas make sure you get ground system to prevent lighting from destroying your network elements.

Whatever you do is at your own risk and I cannot be taken responsible for your actions.
