Due to the lack of fast broadband in my street I'm looking to connect to my friend's wireless network 300m away in order to share their fibre broadband connection.
The trouble is we won't be able to get line of site as there are houses in the way. I could put an antenna in the loft space / potentially on the roof of my house, but can't really ask the same of my friend.
I've seen this question, and tempted to either try making a "cantenna" or just buy an antenna, but I'm not sure it would work at all without line of sight, even though the distance isn't anywhere near the distance some antennas advertise eg 24dBi-Parabolic-Directional-2-4GHz
So my questions are:
- Is it possible to cover 300m with several buildings in the way?
- If it is, what kind of power antenna should I be looking at?
- Should it be possible to get > 2 Mbs?
- Does it make much difference if I use 802.11 G or N for this?
