huh? Sure you can, that's commodity equipment and basic routing,
assuming a clear line of sight and other caveats. It's a long range
version of what I'm doing within my house right now, and I haven't had

Consume.net or another wireless LAN info hub will describe the
stuff to buy; assuming 486s are free, it's IIRC $300-600 for 2 nodes
plus the antenna costs.
