Hi, Could someone tell me what I would need to make a point to point hotspot? I have a wireless Linksys WRT54G router that I use to send a wireless internet connection to a second computer in my house. I would like to share my Internet connection with a person .6 miles away which I have a good "Line of Sight". I assume I would need a uni-directional antenna. If this is true, how does one connect an antenna to a WRT54G or am I way off base? If I could send the signal, the person .6 miles away should be able to pick up the signal with their laptop which is wireless capable. I would think that a "pickup" antenna wouldn't be necessary. Any suggestions or help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hmmm...looks like I'm gonna be alone on this venture!? I have figured out though that I'm going to need a different router. My Linksys doesn't have an external antenna port or removable antenna! So, I think I'll try a Buffalo router. I was hoping that someone out there has shot a signal a half mile and would have some equipment suggestions...guess not. Guess I'll "trial and error"
