May be you should use two embedded hardware (to acomplish yours BSDRouter) like this: http://www.pcengines.ch/alix2d0.htm or like this: http://www.soekris.com/net4526.htm The second one is more expensive than the firts one. Attaching one poweful mini-pci Atheros wireless card on each hardware embedded you might could get large distance. you ought to use one mini-pci wireless card like this: http://www.netgate.com/product_info.php?cPath=26_34&products_id=694 it's a very expensive wireless card but it's very powerful card too, it work with 1watt of power when work in IEEE802.11g/b modes also you need to use two good directional antennas may be like this: http://www.netgate.com/product_info.php?products_id=395 I had used the embedded hardware http://www.pcengines.ch/alix2d0.htm with NanoBSD and I got good results but i never need getting large distances like you. -- "Linux is for people who hate Windows, BSD is for people who love UNIX".
