    Hey heythem the hard part is doing this cheap. I have a 100 foot ethernet cable at my house. it is way to long for my needs but it connects fine. and is not that expensive. The other way is more expencive. you can set up wireless connection. That is if the two buildings are not far apart. I have seen a devise that amplifies and resends signals that may help get across to the other building. Again that does not solve the cheap part.

    how far away are they - would a wireless network work?
    is connection speed important. note wireless G is 54M (I think its 54 - its 50 something)

    Distance and obsticles are the two most important factors here. A simple ethernet cable run from one to the other is the cheapest, but also the most limited. Limited by 100 meters maximum length, and whether it's possible to run a cable from one to the other. A fiber cable might be next, but more likely wireless connectivity is going to solve the issue much more nicely. But then you need a clear line of sight, and again the cheap solutions are very limited in distance.

    If you're farther away than a simple wireless signal can reach, sorry, cheap is no longer an option. Now you're dealing with telecom equipment of some type, whether that's microwave, proprietary radio, satellite, free space optical, or services offered by a telecom company. All such options are going to be in the range of thousands of dollars, reaching into the mid 10's of thousands. A telecom contract may be cheaper than this, but it's a monthly contract, you keep paying and paying and paying.

    Hope this helps,

    -Scott

    Do NOT run a cable between buildings unless you really know what you're doing. Ground loops and lightning strikes are just a couple of the pitfalls waiting for you...

    Depending on the actual distance and the amount of obstructions, 802.11g with directional antennas would probably be the best and easiest to install.

    yes, agree with johnwill.
    unless you can pull the cable safely underground.

    Even underground cables can have issues. If the electrical grounds between the buildings are at a different potential, you can spend weeks trying to get things working. That's the reason for some of the special optical isolated couplers, to avoid such issues. I used to build networking equipment for use in Wall St. trading firms, and we frequently had long network runs. Some of the grounding problems in those old buildings were "interesting". :)

    Well, we are just suggesting general directions that your ultimate solution might take. Most of the time, two wireless boxes talking together are creating or participating on a "wireless bridge". So, what we've been describing is how to implement a wireless bridge using the cheapest solutions possible, focusing on the antenna. The wireless devices that would make use of the antenna are cheap and ubiquitous. Buying an industrial antenna is generally not cheap.

    So, I'm rambling at this point, mainly because I'm still confused by what might be your real question or where your point of confusion is based.
