We have a soft opportunity to troubleshoot / redesign an existing wireless setup that from the start sounds a bit odd.
The customer has two desktop PCs with Cisco PCI Wireless NICs in them that are each connected to a 13.5 dBi Yagi antenna externally mounted (via a 50-foot Low Loss antenna cable). The two locations are approx. 1000' apart with we're hoping a good Line of Sight (LOS).
The customer states that the wireless link fails frequently enough to be a problem - meaning a few times a week. Both PCs have to be rebooted for the link to re-establish. We'll evaluate clear LOS and RF LOS.
My question is if anyone else has seen a deployment like this between two "long distance" PCs with wireless client adapters. Our initial reaction is to make this a true bridge link with two bridges, and network the 2 PCs that way.
