wireless distance question

I work about 2 miles from my home and it is in line of sight from my house. Is there anyway I can beam my wireless connection with somekind of antenna to my work. Those tight ass bosses won't allow my area to log onto the company network so I'm looking for a workaround. Anyone tried these--- http://cgi.ebay.com/Use-a-Direct-TV-...QQcmdZViewItem

or this

WiFi only has a 40m radius. There's no way it'll go that far without some makeshift setup like the one you described.
If you need to get online that bad, use your cellphone.

Talk to these guys


They set the distance record last year at defcon of around 125 miles. Good luck hiding a dish like that under your desk or in a storage closet
