Hello!

I need to make a 50m WIFI link and I have a tree top in the way. Is it still possible to make a link?

As far as hardware goes, I was looking at
Ubiquiti :: AirMax Airgrid M2 16dBi High Power or
Ubiquiti :: AirMax Airgrid M2 20dBi High Power or
Ubiquiti :: AirMax NanoBridge M2 18dBi

Do you think that would do?
Anyone have similar link online?
Do you know, if I can pass VLAN trunk over these devices?

Get two extra small directional antennas and connect with a short wire. Install one on either side of the tree.

Yes, it'll work. Robert X. Cringely did at his old house years ago to share a neighbors DSL line.

Mounting it on a tree is not an option:( It's not our tree and I doubt my client will be interested in that idea:)

On Ubiquiti forum I got the recommendation that Nanostation M2 should be enough for that link...
