Windows 7: Question about Wireless router

Question about Wireless router

Hey guys, need your help/advice with something.

If this is not the correct topic, please move it.

Few days ago I got TP Link ADSL wireless router (W8901G), and now my brother wants to put directional antenna on the wireless AP of that router (instead of that little antenna). He lives few streets away from me. So, antenna directly to the router. And he will put other directional antenna on his house pointing at mine...

My question is this: Will I be able to use WLAN in my room, or the rest of my house? I have laptop and one other PC that I connect via that TP Link.

Thanks for any advice, and sorry for any English language mistakes.

Hi, if the router supports that antenna, then you should not any issues. I don't know about your brother though, interms of connectivity.
