I need to get internet out to my shop computers. The shop is about 1/2 mile away form my house and there is a clear line of sight. I plan on using either a biquad or yagi antenna of some sort.

Can I use something like this?
(I think this would eliminate the need for a router? Also since this is all USB and comes with software designed around it, it should be fairly easy to setup.)

Or Would I be better off getting a wrt54g flashed with dd-wrt to act as a repeater?
(Would this setup be faster/more stable?)

I'm also open to biquad antennas, parabolic dishes and Yagi antennas. Either using a usb connection or router with dd-wrt.

I really dont care how I do it as long as I can get a good reliable signal in my shop which is 1/2 mile away from my home wifi (clear line of sight)

What would the easiest fastest solution be?
