I would suggest if you want Internet and file sharing that far away, get a nice little linksys wireless router (or even an Access Point) and place it near a window facing the other building. Then you can purchase a Cantenna from www.Wirelessgarden.com and point it directly at the steel shop. On that end, install a wireless card (preferably one that has a RMSMA cable so you have longer antenna reach. Place your wireless antenna (on the pc end) somewhere that would be in LOS (Line of sight) of the cantenna and you should get good signal. For improved signal, you can get 2 cantennas, and have one coming from the Access point or Router, and one recieving at the PC end. Good luck, the only other option really is buying a spool of CAT5, a crimper, some heads, and make your own cable to go that distance.
