Specs: Windows 7, intel
In building A I have my ADSL Router (1) and I plan to link this to a wireless router/AP (2) on the roof via cable and then fit a high gain directional antenna to hopefully allow wifi access in Building B which is about 300 mtrs away with Near L.O.S.

If all goes well then inside building B will have wifi access however I may need to consider fitting an AP (3) on the roof Building B and then cabling that to another AP (4) inside the building.

Any suggestions for a better method than this (do not want another adsl as building B only used on occasion) I think I get how to cable router (1) to AP (2) would AP 2 connect to AP3 easily enough if both AP's are the same and DD-WRT and then would it simply be a case of cabling AP3 to AP4. I assume the IP adresses would have to be changed as Router A is my day to day router and the other APs would only be switched on when required. Assume need to seperate the IP addresses as Router A, AP B as etc.

The 2 wireless networks can be same ssid or different, depending on what is easiest. Channel allocation etc would need to be confirmed once local area scanned for other wifi networks as do not want to interfere with them and vice versa.

Any help much appreciated.

Correct me if I'm wrong. That antenna will receive the signal from building A but it's not going to transmit any commands from B back to A. In other words, it will be a one way street.
