Question Wireless Network Between Two Buildings

Hello Members ,
Am new here, and i sure believe that someone here would have the solution i am after

I have an ADSL connection, and i want to share it with my brother who lives in the building across the road.

Situation:
- I live at the 3rd floor of a building (Top Floor, above me is the roof of the building, in case this information is helpful)
- My Brother Lives at the building across the road, but on the 1st floor.

- Distance Between two buildings is around 50 Meters.

- Line of sight is there, i think there might be a few trees. Of course this line of sight is not vertical, its rather angular

Brother

I have a 3COM Router, of course the signal does not reach there. So what shall i do/DIY/buy to share my internet connection to his house?

Thank you

Default Hi Gain Antennas / Biquad

Using high gain antennas would be your best bet. I have been using the biquad design just for this purpose for a couple of years. It should work great for you. 1 biquad connected to the router and aimed at your brothers place should do it. But if you want a really good signal, put one on the router, and one on his computer and aim them at each other. I think you would get a very strong, full speed connection at that distance.

Ok, this solution sounds great, but, how does this antenna connect to my router upstairs? :S

And another question would be, can i connect the other antenna to a ROUTER downstairs? in order for his whole house to be on another wifi of full speed or sth.

You must have a router with a removable antenna, you can use one of the cables that are on the website. If you mount the antenna outside, it would be best. When he receives the signal into his main computer, he can then feed his own wireless router from the wired ethernet connection on that computer, using windows internet connection sharing.

By the way, for this situation it is best to have a router with only 1 antenna. I suggest a Zyxel P-330W or similar. I tend to stay away from Linksys. They like to sell lots of "boxes" with lots of antennas, when its just not needed. They also use the less common RP-TNC antenna connector on most of their equipment.

Thank you all for all your comments. My situation now is the follwoing,
since the router upstairs is a 3com with a non removable antenna, i created a home made directional antenna, thanx to youtube and the signal now come to ONE room in the house with a VERY GOOD signal.

So, i am going to find a wireless router that takes hybrid mode, i heard ASUS has that mode. I will put this router in that room, let it receive the signal, then spread its love to the rest of the house, wired, and wireless.

Do you guys recommend this?

Thanx

Sure thing, plenty of em too:
YouTube - How To Boost Your WiFi Signal
YouTube - Windsurfer wifi antenna

There are much more too, search for WIFI Booster, or WIFI Antenna, or Parabolic Antenna, stuff like that.

Hope this helps
