Networking
My company has two facilities. They are 20 miles apart. We don't want to use wireless antennas, and we don't want to lease a T1 to connect the two buildings. We would like to connect the two buildings with a broadband modem at one facility and a broadban modem at the other. We would like them to work virtually together so that they are both on the same network. We would like this to be done, because we need it for communication and synergy. And also we use wifi phones, so if I were to leave one facility and enter the other I would still use the same SSID and my extension would be the same. Basically so my phone won't know the difference. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can do this with some form of VPN tunnel between the two units, but may be disappointed. Typical broadband modems allow “fast” downloads but are constrained on uploads; so effectively you may wind up with a bi-directional pipe of 600k or so, which is the upload limit of each site on this connection.

Ask your provider – they may have an option and can provide bidirectional speeds. Or, you may be satisfied with a 600k link…
