    I want to connect either 2 networks using wireless or ad another computer (or hub) to an existing network wirelessly from 200 yards away. What would the cheapest way of doing this be? The signal would also be going through about 100feet of planted pines (meaning you can see thru them for the most part) if that matters. Would setting a wireless AP up at the original network's location and putting up a directional antenna work? And does anyone know any sites to go to that deal specifically with this?

    Thanks for any help,
    Tripp
