there are two existing lans in seperate buildings, what would be the best way to link the? wireoless? cable or another option?

What sort of distances are we talking about ? IMHO cable is the best and most secure way , unless the distance is too far or impractical , in which case directional wireless would be better .

its only theoretical, i thinking of possibilities...

would wires not need builders to come lay the cables and drill holes and things...

You'd need to use an Access Points set to Bridging mode to connect the 2 LAN's together then provided you set the two LAN's correctly they should appear as a single LAN.

If you are using enterprise kit and buildings are close together (50-60 metres) you could just run 4 trunks between two switchs and etherchannel them.
