Default Trying to connect 2 buildings with same internet/network

I feel that I have a pretty good grasp on regular networking, but I've been presented a problem that has got me puzzled, and I think I am making it too difficult

I have a main building that has a DSL connection in it. I have another building with an office(2nd floor) in it on the same block. The office is located behind the main building, across the alley, and about 300ft down the street. I want to have a computer setup in this new office that will be able to connect to the main building and access all network resources. There is line of sight between the 2 buildings, so if wireless is the answer that shouldn't be a problem.

Is wireless the answer? Is there a different solution that I am overlooking? If wireless is the solution can you please give me some recommendations on equipment that I would need for this setup?

Thanks for all your help
Robert Wallinger

Default connecting two building with 300foot

yes Mr. Robert wallinger
Wireless is your answer,i think you can connect both computers by wireless.
you should have one wireless Access point in one building and wireless PCI or wireless USB in other one,but if you have Notebook you can test with notebook's wireless,but i don't think notebook is good choice,because wireless of Notebooks are weak one.foe wireless USB i recommend you a Linksys USB that have 300 Meter ability to connect access point. you can use Linksys(cisco),or D-link instruments.
