What is "ToughCable"?
Went to the friend's farm this past weekend. I was able to see the water tower in town from the second floor of the home. This means that there is a visual between the house on the farm and the apartment building in town (3.5 miles) so the feasibility of a wireless bridge connection still exists. Its only seen from one part of the roof on the farm but easy to see. I'm thinking the wireless bridge to a CC ISP would still be faster.
Meanwhile I had him run the cat5e between the old and the new house using the old wireless bridge.

The tough cable is the recommended cable to use with their wireless products. It provides an outdoor rated, shielded cable to help with ESD issues you might have without a grounded/shielded cable. If you cam make a factory looking RJ45 termination on standard CAT5e cable you probably won't have much of a problem terminating the toughcable. It is a bit more difficult to work with but not too bad.
Anyone interested in setting these things up should look at the left and middle video on THIS page. The recommended settings are in one of the videos.
Also I invested in 1000' of the cable, as that is the only way you can buy it from what I found.
