Default Sharing Wireless Between Two Houses

Hi,

We are trying to share the internet between 2 cottages on a terrace.
There are two houses between us, and the total distance is around 50meters.

We can mount an antenna either on the back of the houses on a pole with clear line of sight, or an antena in the garden, again with line of sight.

I am looking for help with exactly what antennas and which router / access points are best to get. Also what distance is the maximum i can have the antennas away from the router & access point.

Both the router and access point should support bridging (or repeating?) and be compatible with each other.

Also if anyone could give me an idea of what kind of power of aerials we would require to reach between the two points.

Also thinking back, i guess we would need both a router and access point with two aerials? One to be wired up to the outside aerial, and one to distribute signal around the cottages, is this correct?

If not, whats the best way of doing it?

Many Thanks.

WELL..there are several ways to do this..if you can point directional antennas
thu the windows of the house in the way and hit the other side correctly..you dont need to do anything else....just get 2 hi gain directional antennas..at least 10 to 14 db is best..

sure you could put them on poles... better hope lighting doesnt hit them...wooo hoo that would be funny...mostly the birds will peck and poop on them...maby build nests on them.

all you need is one good quality router and 2 good antenna ...any measly antenna will for your pc as it will be next to the wirless router anyway

REMEMBER THAT THE ROUTER YOU GET NEEDS TO HAVE REMOVABLE ANTENNAS.. OR YOU WONT BE ABLE TO CONNECT YOUR EXTERNAL TO IT..

IT SHOULD ALSO BE AN "N" RATED ROUTER.. NOT B OR G

THIS IS REALLY A PRETTY SIMPLE JOB.. THE HARDEST PART WILL BE STICKIN THE EXTERNAL ANTENNA OUT... MAKE SURE ITS MOUTNED SOLID ENOUGH TO HANDLE HIGH WIND AND LOTS OF STUPID BIRDS SITTIN ON IT...
