    Hey Trevor,nnIdea for the guy wanting to extend his network to an adjacent building (Byron Bay wasn’t it? Lucky bugger!).nnHe could assemble a DIY wireless point-to-point link, using two WiFi Access Points each connected to a directional antenna like that shown in nhttp://www.ht.com.au/part/N0207-NETGEAR-ProSafe-IndoorOutdoor-Patch-Panel-antenna/detail.htsnnIn it’s most basic form, he’d have a WiFi AP connected into his existing network at his main site, and a second AP at the remote site, connecting to whatever network he has/needs there. nIf he wants wireless at the remote site, Netgear may have a WiFi access point for the remote building that can do both receiving the signal and “repeating” it to WiFi clients – otherwise he’d need a second AP there and this system will just look like a “radio link” connecting the two buildings/networks.nnThe solution may look expensive (but Netgear or other vendors may identify cheaper antenna options, as the distance isn’t too great) – but compared to a second ADSL line, it’d pay for itself in about a year…nnI saw a system like this used between a shop and its warehouse (about 500 meters) successfully – but it was a DLink …. I guess you’d like to find a Netgear solution if you could.nnHappy Easter…nPeter Smerdon
