Connecting two networks about 1.5Km apart

Specs: Windows XP
I have two offices about 1.5Km apart with single story buildings in between. Both offices have adsl internet access via routers. I would like to connect the two networks so that dta and printers can be shared. Can anybody tell me how to go about is. I'm a novice as far as setting up such a network is concerned.

Let me do the mathematic work ...

Let me quess how far is 1.5Km ... isn't it about 0.93 of mile (or roughly 4910.4 feet). Now the maximum range for wireless -n is roughly 656 feet or 200 meter and for ethernet CAT6 100 meter or 328 feet ... Did I get it right (feel free to critique my bad math)?

I would suggest you install vpn capable routers between sites and create a site to site vpn. This is a continual up network connection. I use Sonicwall for this.

Hi, could you perhaps tell me what equipment I would need, as well as the procedure. The problem I have is that we're in a small town with no network guys nearby, and those who can help would charge an arm and a leg just to get here.

If you buy sonicwalls you will buy subscription for how many nodes [pcs] you are connecting and with this come maintenance. You get free tech support with maintenance. They are very helpful.
