I guess long distance is relative, but I have a computer 150ft away that I need on our office network. Currenlty we are using an old linksys wrt54g that was donated. I have a dlink dir-655 that I am using at home that I wouldn't mind using. Any suggestiongs on antenna's, adpatpers, and so forth would be appreciated.

those 150 feet between the where the router will be, and the computer - is there a clear line of sight between the 2, or are there walls, (steel) cabinets, etc, in-between?

2 cinder block walls, not reinforced, at right angles about halfway.

I've ordered two usb wireless nic's that are recommended for long distance performance and a high gain 9db antenna for them.
