"Question: I own a coffee shop with high speed wireless internet and i live about 2 miles away, is there any way that i can hook up something to my desktop to enable it to pick up my signal from the shop?
Answer: Yes you can!!! Get a wireless N card with MIMO and an extended antenna. I have a D-link extreme N card (dwa-552) with a extended range antenna (the antenna didn't come with the card). I live in North Central Phx and my signal comes from downtown APS building approx 5-7 miles away. the connection speed is very fast it ranges from 900KB/s to 2.3Mb/s (upload) 7500-8000kb/s (download). the router APS uses is a linksys standard G. For better performance i recommend your router to be a wireless N router for much higher bandwidth and greater range.
A full Wireless G will never work, I think the people above are live two to five years in the past. Get with the times guys!!! G is out N is in!!
No one should ever have to pay for Internet Except for the guys who give it away for free"
