OK

so my freinds are moving a few houses away

and we want to be able to be on the same lan

so we were thinking about doing some sort of focused wireless thing (The standard wireless doesn't reach far enough, I am thinking)

anyone know anything about this, the other house is probably a block away

so I see stuff on boosting range, and direction

but I don't see anything on how far you can get your range, or anything like that

The range you are looking for isn't that far, but in a city it gets tricky. Is the other house in line of sight?

802.11b/g can reach up to 1000 feet on LOS, I think.

Oh there are all sorts of antennas and signal boosts you can do...even legally! ;)

Yes, and many of them demand delicious preparation. :)
