I need a wireless connection between two buildings about 70-75 metres apart, with open space between them and a few trees in the direct line of sight between the modem/router and the wireless PC location.
I am considering getting the Netgear DGND3700 wireless modem/router but I have some doubts about the signal reaching that distance. A range extender is not an option as there is nowhere to house it at a intermediate point. Running an ethernet cable is also not an option.
I'd appreciate it if we have anyone on board with some experience in this area who can comment on the likelyhood of getting that sort of distance from any of the omnidirectional modem/routers that are typically in the $120 - $150 price range.
I don't have a problem spending a bit more... I just don't know what I need to buy.
