Is it possible to bake a network between 2 wireless routers using the wireless signal between 2 houses?
How do you do it if you can?

Thanks :)

1 hour at 180 degrees celsius should do it.

What makes and models are the 2 routers?

It's possible if one of them supports the Client Bridge wireless mode.

Also possible using Wireless Distribution System (WDS) but both devices have to support it and WDS isn't a standard so different hardware/venders have different implementaitons.

I did it with an apple airport extreme and one airport express. Easy to set-up and runs b/g/n

Are you trying to set-up a secuure networ (i.e. Domain) or just to connect tow two PC's?

If you are just trying to connect the two PC's you can setup it up pretty easily. I would suggest you do think about security as opening certain ports will make them open to others via the Internet.

Also, it may pay to ensure you either have Static IP's for both Internet Connections or at least use DDNS.

I share my network with the old man who lives 3 houses down from me. I'm using 2 x asus WL520GU routers with tomato firmware. This allows me to run a WDS setup with a common SSID and WPA password so computers and other devices will connect to whichever has the strongest signal. I share internet and files on this (albeit a bit slowly). Tomato also allows me to boost the signal.

You can also use a wireless bridge setup which is easier and you don't need both devices supporting WDS, i see someone is selling one at the moment

I think it could get confusing if you are using 2 independent internet connections though.
