This link will be just for the Internet connection. This is for a
business located 4 miles out of town with no wired high speed Internet
options. They already have a m0n0wall that will still be in use as a
router at the office.
I picture something like this:
ADSL Modem (in town) <--> m0n0wall <--> Wireless Bridge <--> m0n0wall
<--> Office Network
By Wireless Bridge I mean whichever wireless equipment we choose to make
the link with.
I was initially picturing this setup without a m0n0wall in the town
location, basically hooking up the Modem to the wireless bridge.
However, I think I will need to place some sort of router there to setup
the PPPoe for the Modem. Having a router there will also allow me to
have the wireless bridge equipment on private addressing instead of
eating up public addressing for them.

We have towers in place already, and there is clear LOS between them.
Since my email yesterday, I have been looking a little bit at Ubiquiti
Has anybody had any experience with these?
