Tim and the Tin Titan


Neighborhood Wireless
I have a friend who lives across the street from me, about 3-4 houses down. We want to attempt to split his broadband connection by using a wireless link to my (future) laptop. Now, the distance is about 200 meters, at the outside most range of the LinkSys BEFW11S4. So we are now looking into range extension options.

Dante found the Super Cantenna. According to this article, they usually get a mile of range out of it. That would be way more than what is actually needed. But we would also need to go through two sets of walls...

If it's not enough, we will look into other solutions.

I'll keep you posted on the developments.
