Building Long Range antenna, will it work with my hardware?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A buddy of mine is stuck on dail up , worst of all dial up with AOL , he is less than 3 miles from me and has a decent pc , but horrible net speeds .

since i have a good 20mb/s connection , a WRT54GL linksys and a spare 2.4Ghz receiver card , i was thinking about building a long rage wireless antenna to send him the wireless signal , using this guide here : http://www.engadget.com/2005/11/15/h...-dish-antenna/

if i picked up all the stuff they have there and built it , would it work with what i have already , or would i need to buy a new router/receiver?



any help appreciated

Looks great.

Build one on his end, and build a more powerful antenna on your end.

Worst comes to worst, it costs you $20 and a fun weekend of screwing around.

Do you have a clear line-of-sight? It probably won't work if you have to shoot through buildings, trees, hills, etc.
