Ok, here's the deal. (skip to the stupid question bit if you want)
I'm an internet junky, I live on the net. I'm a web designer and I also hang on the net like most people for fun, so I'm more or less online from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep.
On the 15th of August, my brother is going overseas for two weeks and I have to house sit, which means I need to be there in the evenings.
I rent my place, have no pets + the cottage is on my landlords property, so I have no excuses that I need to look after my own place.
My brother has dialup and can only get 28.8, which is just not on - it's pathetic.
The stupid question bit
My brothers place, as the crow flies, is max 1.5km from my house. He is, to all intents and purposes, at the bottom of a long sloping hill from my house, with all the usual suburban stuff inbetween - trees, houses, walls and roads.
How much would it cost to setup a temporary wireless connection between my place and his and how feasible is it ?
I don't have any wireless components at all. I can spend max. R1000 on this exercise.
Is it possible ?
I'm more than prepared to buy second hand hardware and to beg borrow and steal whatever is needed to hookup temporary cantennas.
I don't care what it looks like (within reason) or if I have to climb up a few trees or onto the roof to get some kinda LOS.
From what I understand, it costs R2000 to setup a single node.
R4000 for 2 weeks is obviously not a good plan.
