Ok, basicaly you would need some wireless network cards and some wireless 'access points' to group it all together and a central server to share the interenet. That should set you up.

Haha; a reasonable Hub; and a few dozen TV Size High Power Antennia strategically placed with a good deal of lead to connect them. Either that or one dreadfully huge one.

You should ask at your local hardware store for their biggest Wireless Network Antennia; then ask for the range, and buy as many as would be required to fit into your system. From there; you'll need one PC controlling it with the Internet Connection; and a good piece of planning as to user accounts and such like.
