I have engaged a couple of list members privately on this one, thinking
that it perhaps didn't have enough currency to warrant the bandwidth.
But last night, thinking about it further, it seems it would indeed be
beneficial to see if the experts would discuss this on this list: I am
in the next couple of weeks going to deploy an attempt to network my
home and small office to my ISP via wireless. Their physical POP is
about five miles from my house, and about eight miles from my office. A
neighbor has offered the use of a 100 foot tower that lies between my
house and my office.
This message is concerned with the topic of whether it would be worth
it, to increase my chances of success in this venture, for me to upgrade
the current set of PCI342 cards that are currently slated to be used for
this project, with the newer, higher-wattage 350s.
It's a significant expense, given that I've already purchased the 340s.
But if the tripled-plus power of the newer units will remarkably
increase the signals betweeen the various antennas, it would seem to be
worth it, as this setup is going to replace a land-based access system
that is very reliable.
As a side note I am doing all of this under Linux, and so far I have
been using both Ben's and Elmer's drivers for my testing.
Most of the advice I've gotten so far has been somewhat negative, but
now that it's coming on to deployment time, I want to give this issue a
hearing to see what the people on this list, most of whom know a lot
more about wireless than I do, would do if they themselves were about to
engage in a project of this sort.
Thanks in advance.
