hi i am interested in setting up a neighborhood wifi network between myself and friends. presently i own an Asus Rt N66u router along with a Hawking Technology range booster but haven't been able to get sufficient range from this. is their any router or networking device that i can use to at least achieve like 1 mile network range and coverage,which should be more that sufficient to accommodate my networking needs???
Before you even start to look at equipment you need to find out if you can put up a tower or you can rent space on one. To go a mile even on flat terrain you are going to need at least 50ft even more is better. Wireless is line of site so every location needs to be able to see the central location when you are going long distance.
So can you even get a permit to put up a small tower where you live.
