Are there any WT Licences required?

What about RFI, from the link and also from microwave cookers etc?

MIcrowave ovens - 5GHz is well outside their band, and easy to spot if an issue locally, as would wipe out the 2.4GHz band. 2.4GHz is not a good band to use for long distance due to the amount of networks already using it

Yep was looking at the 5Ghz models only as its 5km away. Back to my other point, does anyone have any tips or suggestions of fitting these things? Can anyone recommend a company to help that doesn't cost the earth? Thanks

OK I have used the finder it just lists a description and doesnt give you a name or any contact details! Not much use I'm afraid. Thanks anyway. I can't believe there is so little information online about this stuff.

Well it works for me, giving names, description and website addresses. I suppose it depends where you are.

Ring these people.http://www.solwise.co.uk/networkingwireless-outdoor.htm

The Technical Help Line is very good and they stock all the kit. I have used them for a number of years for my village wifi system.

Line of sight is the key to it working

Great thanks will give them a buzz. What equipment did you use? Is yours just a mesh around the village? How do you connect to the net?
