We've been using KarlNet's WaveLan-based network components here in
State College, PA with good success. Multiple non-intersecting links
and a few multi-drop links. Distance is limited to about 3.5 miles.
Thruput is 2Mbps without compression. We use the router/bridge version
for about $2300 per site. There is a cheaper ISA interface card if you want
to run that way, but I'd suggest using the higher level boxes (SNMP,
ethernet connectivity, encryption software, multi-point capabilities, etc).
You can reach them at <>. Of course, there are no
monthly fees to any provider when you build your own network... :-)

I saw a reflector site for CU-SeeMe that was running over one of
these 2M links to Doug Karl's (Founder of KarlNet :-) home.
The link name was something like "Doug@home"... Check back a few
days in this list.

Hope this helps!
