writes "Here's a description I wrote of how I set up a
point-to-point 802.11b link over 3.5 miles for
Internet access at my house. The link runs at 3.5 Mbps, which I barely make a dent in, and I'd like to offer the rest of the bandwidth to anyone who's got line-of-sight to my location in San Francisco."
The great thing about this story is both his terrific exposure
to different parts of city and his willingness to share. It also makes it clear just how easy it is to set up a long distance link.
