Hey Guys,
I know that this is not exactly the right forum for this but I've tried the WiFI tech forums and some of the manufacturer forums with no luck. I also don't know if this is the right place for this post either. But here goes nothing:


Here is what I'm trying to do:
I am part of an amateur race team and we are trying to get live footage
from inside the car to our pits (about .5 away). I'd like to run a set of
IP cameras to a wifi router in the car, boost the signal from the router
with the Bullet and an omni directional antenna, then catch the signal with
an additional antenna mounted high in pit lane, attaching to an access
point with another Bullet then on to our laptops.


My only response from this inquiry is that Wireless will just not work for this distance especially with a moving vehicle. He suggested going with an analog camera that transits on a different frequency. Soooo i have no idea what he means by that.

Anyhow, does anyone have ANY suggestions for me?

I greatly appreciate your help.

Rob

Cellular data is spotty at best. I tried UStream last race with no avail.
