I'm aware of the indoor limitations, however the OP use was outdoors. I'm not aware of the power of the 5.8 GHz link but would make for an (expensive) experiment none the less, to see how far a pair of units would operate. They do have a basic go / no go signal strength indication which is used for set up.

knoydart: This application sounds almost like a situation for the Cel-Fi units which have a 5.8GHz link between the boxes to extend the network. Cel-Fis are only licensed for the other two telcos, so could be doable for those that subscribe to the others.

Slightly O/T is Vodafone considering Cel-Fi licensing to match Telecom and 2Degrees?

and having only now heard of these, I found a site for ordering them but can't seem to see a price anywhere? 

You need a signal from your home network for these to work, Sure Signal requires no signal from the mobile network

But you need a fixed line connection.

and even then your connection needs to be something greater than 1Mb/s... mine is only just 1Mb and won't complete initializing unless EVERYTHING else is physically unplugged :(

one of the reasons I'm selling and moving now.
