Trying to connect multiple wireless networks

May 12, 2011 at 19:33:57
Specs: Windows XP & Server 2008r2
I manage a network using Windows Server 2008 r2 that connects to the Internet (ISP) through a wireless radio antenna. We have three other locations that also connect to the same ISP through wireless radio antennas on the roof of each building. Those locations are windows XP machines. Each location is separated by more than 1,000 ft and do not have line of sight to each other. I'm wanting the XP machines to be able to logon to the domain of the server and access shared files. How can I do that?

Interesting issue. The best solution is probably with cable :-). \
Other solution is to make tunnels between buildings. This can be done with open vpn, or with some routers. For me the best free router is vyatta (which i am using). Just download install on a computer (vyatta requirements are minimal - it is linux after all :-) ), and set the tunnels between buildings. On vyatta site has a great documentation, so it will be easy for you to setup.
The other way probably would be with RODCs in each building which for me is not the best solution :-)
