    the only way feasible is thru the net and telephone lines
    u cant wifi it ... cuz 4kms is too much
    ofcourse u can get permission from the government ... dig the road for 4 kms and run an optical cable between the 2 places and u can set up a local lan !!
    yipppiieee !!

    connecting 2 pcs!! ??

    Forget the idea...
    the sooner the better :lol:
    coz theres no use regreting the fact tht nothing suites ur budget n even if it does its not worth it.
    if u wann it for transferring files then use cd writers ;
    if u wann it for playing games then tell him to bring his pc next to u every weekend;
    if u want it for sahring ur internet connection then pay separetely for your ISP which is always less than ur budget

    get broadband connection and go for vpn , i think thats the setup which might work .

    if anyone here using vpn or wireless , please explain how u set it up , including limitations and speed of data transfer and distance in case of wireless

    a cross over cable with two ethernet cards will give you a 100 MBPS connection total cost
    2x NIC cards = 2x400=800/-
    UTP CAT 5 @ Rs 11 per m = 550/-
    RJ45 x 2 @ Rs 5/-
    Crimping Rs 20/-
    TOTAL 1380/-

    How can I setup a wireless connection. O.K I will make it clear :-( I have heard of all those Wi-Fi stuffs but don't know how it works. Is it like an internet connection??? mean is there something like theres ISP in Internet or is it available for everyone. Is it available in Kerala?????
