THis is a perfect solution for two neighbors who are wanting to setup a wireless network and live relatively close to one another.

Read through that article thoroughly. He gives a lot of instructions through his own experience. The toughest part IMHO, is setting up the "pig tail and attaching it to your wireless NIC.. or card.
