The only ISPs available to my house are wireless ones, and even they cannot get a signal through all the trees. However, I have a neighbor whose house is about 550 meters away and they can receive service. They said I can use their house to put a dish on. Now, I know some wireless ISPs are okay with this setup. Basically have the dish and a repeater on my neighbor's house. The company I'm talking to is not open to it, though.

So, this leaves me thinking it wouldn't be that hard to handle the repeater part myself. Can anyone shed some light on the right equipment for this? Do I just connect the repeater to the ISPs transceiver and point it at my house? I'm imagining that this setup ends up having essentially 3 separate networks: (1) the network connecting the transceiver to the ISP, (2) the network connecting my neighbors house to mine and (3) my regular home wifi.

Tom's won't help you fraudulently obtain internet against the policies of the ISP. Thread closed.
