Hey Guys,
Its looking like we'll be expanding our Auckland office by getting an office very close. The new block is about 100m awayand has a good line of sight. What kinds of options would people recommend for this? I was thinking wifi but the bandwidth is just too low (I'm looking for 100mbps+). I understand other options include:
- Laser
- Microwave

I don't really want to put in a seperate router into the new office so would just like to plug a switch into the end of the link and gain access to my local subnet.

Genesis Communications do point to point wireless with Motorola gear.  Ask for Rex, I'm sure he can help out.

Hi, if you are looking at doing it yourself then a pair of M5 nano stations running airmax (rather than 802.11n mode) will give you what you are looking for and provide a straight layer2 bridge, probably only cost you $5-600 for gear plus time to set up.

PM me if you want a quote to supply/install etc and any technical specs

Cyril
