Want WiFi in the Country check this out!



My parents live 6 miles from the closest town and about 3 miles from the closest high speed cable drop. Seeing this article in Engadget today got me to thinking on a solution that I may have to play around with. The key will be finding someone willing to let me mount some commercial WiFi Gear up on their roof. Need to see who I know in the area as it would be a fun experiment to get them some high speed access. [Engadgett]

I have one of those dishes in storage also and I bet you using some of my RF skills I could build a better antenna then these guys did and even increase senstivity by buying a high end amplifier for the unit.
