Wireless Communication Help

  woodchip 23:23 28 Nov 08

Me and my Daughter live about 600yds apart, I want to have communication if I can Using whatever any suggestions welcome. I tried Walky-talky's from Maplin 10k range but no go they will not work through walls.
She as no Landline although I let her use a Laptop that can work Wireless with USB Dongle, but it too far for to pick up my BB.

Any Ideas I can look at

How's the mobile broadband signal round your way, woodchip? Else I'm thinking CB Radio.

I do Have two CB radios But wanted something a bit more simpler if I could. BB for me is good am on TalkTalk 8mb and get round about 7mb down

6643kbps Down just tested and

623kbps up

I meant mobile broadband for your daughter, woodchip, it doesn't require a landline. Check the coverage in your area.click here

She did not want to go down that rout as it would cost more than using her mobile to ring me

The radios would have been the Ideal solution as they was only £40 But as above no good through walls. I asked at Maplin about External Antennas but they do not have anything like that to fit walkytalkys

I took them back as I could not get no connection at all. too many wall's to go through.

Its not the cost of buying within reason so long as I could get something to work as I want it to
