OnlineColegeShare1200FT

Recommended Posts

:evil1: Hi, I intend to share online college with my three neighbors, all of them are family.

Currently we can only get dial up or satelite. So I am getting a TabletPC with windows Tablet PC 2005 Operateing System; and need to set up Wi-Fi to extend about 1200 feet with really good speed (30-90kb dowload?) for their downloading from the college library database. I have a desktop, and there is another desktop in the house with a spare PCI slot and USB 1.1, The comp at the house next door where my cousin with 3 kids shes 21 (ages 4, 1, and womb) has USB 2.0 and a PCI slot. I have not measured the farthest distance to the farthest house but i am guessing less than 2000 feet.

I do not know anything about Wi-Fi but what I have looked at so far I like the Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router Model WPN824 or WPNT834

I don't know of any other better ideas, as repeaters are good for extending your wireless network.

The firewall on the router should not slow down your connection at all, as it doesn't slow down mine.

FIREWALL OFF:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1047 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 128 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Fri Dec 23 10:35:23 EST 2005

Bottom Line:: 19X faster than 56K 1MB download in 8 sec

Diagnosis: Looks Great : 13.93 % faster than the average for host (direcpc.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-ROTCGUF5P

FIRWALL ON:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1069 Kbps about 1.1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 131 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Fri Dec 23 10:36:24 EST 2005

Bottom Line:: 19X faster than 56K 1MB download in 7.82 sec

Diagnosis: Looks Great : 16.32 % faster than the average for host (direcpc.com)

It sounds like you might have other neighbors in the area that would be close to you, make sure you put some kind of security on your firewall; you don't want anyone hacking into your computer or stealing bandwidth from your already slow internet connection.

This might help you: Is the terrain open between you two?  If it is, this is done easily.  Get an access point with external antenna connector ( http://www.netgear.com/products/details/WG102.php ) and a directional external antenna like this  (http://www.netgear.com/products/details/ANT24D18.php).  2 miles is easy.  I do this now with an omni-directional antenna, and it works fine at 10 miles.  All depends on the terrain.  Cost a few hundred bucks.  Check out outdoor wifi on Ebay.

You can read the rest of the topic here http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=5071.0. Don't forget you can search the forum for a similar topic before you post something asking the same thing. Best wishes with your wifi.
