Motrolo makes a 900, 2400 and 5600 mc Ethernet link.
The 900 mc will go 1-3+ miles at 1 mega bit.
900 has the longest range when you have Trees.
The ohter modes will not work with trees.
for aprox $1000 you can setup a very "reliable" 1+
mile 900 mc ethernet link.

or, you can use a pair of 2.4 wifi's, amps and big
antennas, no trees.  Non hams have a 4 watt erp wifi
limit. Hams have a 390 watt erp wifi limit on channel
1 in the usa.

A $200 solution needs the words "un-reliable"
