Multiple Building Wireless Network

I am looking for a wireless solution to connect about 5-6 buildings together. All buildings are within 1500 feet of each other. I need some information

on the exact wireless hardware need to make this work.

All buildings are in line of sight of each other. All computer systems will be on same subnet and also running NetBEUI.

Im looking at the Cisco 350 Wireless bridge and want to get information

on how to have 1 main radio located where our Internet connection is distribute network access to the other 4 - 5 buildings.

Thanks

Jim

Hi Jim,

you can use the Cisco 350 Wireless Bridge on your main building and on each of your other buildings also a 350 Wireless Bridge. In addition you will need antennas for the bridges. Here you can find a data sheets, to select the best antenna: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps469/index.html

Hi

You can have one point to multipoint bridge network or if possible break in to

two point to multipoint scenario .

I would recommend to do site survey also .

You can have

2 BR - ( non root )-----1 Br ( root ) -----1 BR ( root )---------2 BR ( non root)

Or have one single point to multipoint .

If you have all the bridges in linear fashion

non root ----root ---Wire connection ---non root ------root .

a) Keep Coax cable as short as poosible

b) Here is the antenna guide

c) Have proper seal like coax seal .
