    Accesspoints

    I'm looking for a pair of wireless accesspoints, they have to be 802.11g and they need to either come with or have as an extra an external antenna. I will be networking 2 buildings, I will have an access point in a window in each building. The buildings are about 25 metres apart with nothing seperating them. I also need as much security as possible (well, not OTT but ample security because I will be sharing a broadband connection through the accesspoints)
    I was advised in my last post to have
    Two access points in bridge mode, with external antennas.
    Does anyone have any recommendations as to what I should get?
    How about D-Link 2000AP 54G Wireless Accesspoint but it does say or indoor use.
    Any help would be great
    Thanks

    Ta
    Do you think that 2 accesspoint could communicate over 25 meters of open ground?
    Because I need this network pretty quick

    Just had a look around Dabs, couldn't find any external antennas that fit the Buffalo.
    Anyone know where I can get one? (it says the Buffalo AirStation supports an MC connector)
    Had a look on Buffalos web page, I could only find 1 antenna which seemed as though it would work outside.
    WLE DA
    Think thought would be any good?
