| Wireless connection distance and...|
We have some property, and one building will have a pc hardwired to the internet. I'm curious as to the distance I could shoot a wireless signal from that hardwired pc, to other buildings/areas on the property? Via a road, the distance is maybe one mile, but a straight line shot would be less.
Somebody at work said that they've received a wireless signal from their home pc to their laptop, up to roughly 3 miles from his place? I figure it's most likely another wireless connection he's intercepting, but would truly appreciate some additional comments regarding the distance I could shoot the signal.
In addition to the distance, what would be my best choice of wireless router (no mac involved), to tackle this, and even wireless cards, since there may be more than one pc or laptop being used at any given time (shop use, home, etc.)
I've heard that what I want to do is not really a problem, but I'm such a noobie to this stuff, doing it is another story for me. Thanks for the advice.
