If your network cards/routers can be connected to external antennas, you could use 2 cantennas to extend the range.

It is basicly a cheap waveguide. If you align the two devices correctly with line-of-sight, I have heard claims of 5 miles. For more information, just Google for cantenna.

You can get professional antena's that have a range of up too 15 miles. These are around £100 though so arnt really an inexpensive soloution.
