Hello all, My question is simple i think. What do i need to receive and send wifi from my house to a mountain top thats about 7 miles away . Im on a desktop, I plan to build a parabolic bi quad for the outside of house that the only place i get a signal on a wifi finder is about 75ft from the house i get full signal with 4 leds all lit up there. i need a list of all things i really need to make this work all we can get here is dialup were going nuts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance!!
thanks for the info so far. my biggest worry is that i will spend alot of money to find out that its not a wifi hotspot but a wireless provider in which i know uses that mountain top but they want even come to my place and see if i can get setup with them . but im still gonna try. i will let you guys know how its going as i continue this qwest. but keep the ideas coming they are appreciated.

If your able to get a signal with your WiFi finder 75 ft. from your house coming from the mountain, then take a laptop with wifi built in and try to connect to the access point from that location. If it works out, just hook up a outdoor wifi radio hooked to a bi-quad, flat panel, or other kind of directional antenna, and run a very longgggg USB cable back to your house (to avoid signal loss in the coax). You should be fine.
