Basics of wireless network design


We don’t have a large requirement: we live in a rural location with patchy fixed internet connectivity - we’re in the process of designing a local wireless network that can link a group of homes to our nearest fixed (wired) internet connection.

The connection point is under 1km (around 0.75 on Google earth) distant from the 3 homes - I’d welcome some advice/pointers on network design for a pretty simple setup like this?

I’ve got a reasonable amount of experience of ethernet & TCP/IP network design, but my wireless experience in the unlicensed arena is limited - it would be good to know the characteristics of the equipment, and how best to deploy.

Thanks in advance!
