Need advice on wireless network for a church

By billkater
Sep 14, 2005
  1. Ok now, I have set-up a hard wired network at my home with no problems. I have never done anything with a wireless network. So i guess my question is this:

    Where do I start?

    What I need to do is share the DSL connection coming into the main church with the annex nest door, about 75' across a parking lot. Should I go wireless? Should a trench in weather proof cat6 in a conduit? What other options do I have and the pros and cons of each?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Bill

    Sure the CAT6 would be best, but a good wireless router can do the job.

    A VERY good wireless router. It's hard to get a good signal 20' across a house, let alone 75' through two buildings and open air.
    Wire would be best.
    They also make like a direct microwave transmitter, where you put the two little dishes pointing strait at each other across buildings. We've done that before. A little different on the setup though.

    Nothing beats a good, solid, physical connection.
