QuickBridge. This kit includes a pair of bridges, outdoor antennas, surge arrestors and Ethernet cables. Both antennas would be mounted outdoors. You'd connect one bridge to an available switch port on your wireless G network. You'd connect the other bridge to a PC (or hub) at the second home.
You can find a list of wireless bridge products at Wi-Fi Planet.
