Re: Tesla coil for wireless data transmission?

Original poster: jbrave <onephatcat@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Thanks all for the great information.  Nothing like having one's
curiosity fulfilled with real information!  I was wondering
essentially if the tesla coil technology could be adapted for wifi,
basically because most w-ifi has serious limitations in terms of not
passing through trees and walls, being best in a line-of-sight
configuration - so for a rural area, not the most practical way to
set up a town network, and I had come across some mention of Tesla's
experiments that had generated a massive magnetic field - so was
thinking - "can we create a really powerful wide area networking
system using this technology?"

Obviously, it is not the most practical approach.
