    Anybody using a reliable system under 1K to send fast Wi-Fi to another building? I'm wanting to be able to beam the Internet to the shop without having to get another monthly bill and account. I can program cisco routers and am network savy, but I have not worked with any non commercial stuff so looking for input on consumer level priced equipment. Shop is about 100 yards from my house.

    I've been looking at these two so far, not many reviews on the radiolabs one, but looks pretty good.

    These look good but $$$ Pricey

    I would prefer a non sight line system as it will be a little tricky to get that in my circumstance. I could possibly get aa line of sight but it will take a little doing to get high enough to get around obstacles.

    100 yards, that's a good haul. I'd be tempted to run a cable inside conduit and a mesh system like ERRO in both locations.

    Unfortunately running a cable is not an option because it is across a paved street and it isn't legal to run cables ungrounded or overhead. So it has to be wireless, either Yagi directional antennas dialed in pointing at each other, or microwave which will penetrate some brush and treeline much better.

    I am very interested to see what you end up doing. This is one of my goals for this year is to get internet access in my shop. Granted mine is only 100 ft from my house but I would have to trench up my driveway to put a conduit in. I did a little reading on another forum a while back and it seemed like a lot of guys on there were using ubiquiti hardware that was pretty reasonable in cost from what I remember.

    I use ubiquity at 3 locations.
    In some areas it does better than others.
    In North Georgia I broadcast 200+ lineal feet and about 130 feet down in elevation to the creek and get about 60 MBS. We have seen signal as far as 400 ft away but it was pretty slow.
