Default 200m possible with wifi?

I'm searching for a way to make a reliable networklink between my and my girlfriends computer.

My modem is capped to 15kbps upload, which is way too low. 50 to 100kbps should suffice.

Her dorm room is located about 200~250meters from mine. Except the walls of my and her house, there's nothing but a few trees in between it. Is this duable with a good wifi router + wifi card with a large antenna or is this wishfull thinking?

How do those "outdoor wifi antenna" work and would this solve my problem?

Antennengewinn: 12dBi // VSWR: 1.5 max

I suppose he means that people could tap into your connection with the right equipment.

price?

I've toyed around with a D-link antenna that should work up to 2KM in open air. works OK, with a clear view we had a good connection. try to find out how far the antenna actually reaches, just 1000meter doesn't say much
