If you go to an outlying area, I highly recommend that you contact IonSky:

They do 802.11b, and I have an installation that spans 4 miles and provides 
1M down and 256 up.  I moved to Coal Creek Canyon from Broomfield in July.  
I had DSL for three years through Speakeasy and I have to say, the connection 
through IonSky is actually *better* than my old DSL line!  They will do a free 
site survey to see if you are eligible.

I use my home machines remotely all day, 5dpw.  I have yet to experience a 
single hiccup.  I am truly amazed :)
