Distance for wireless reception using DSL

I currently have DSL in my home. I have two detached buildings on my property and I want use the same DSL line I have in the main building in these other buildings. First, what is the distance for perfect reception from a wireless DSL router, and second, can I run three computers off one line using one router?

If you are using wireless routers you can get distances of up to 300 feet. However, that usually applies to indoor use. If you can run Ethernet Cat 5 to each building that would be your best option.
