Anyone know if any access points out there have the ability to repeat for another access point securely (128bit+ wep)?
===> main access point --------> intermediate repeating access point ---------> wireless client
The documentation I've read implies the structure needs to look something like:
===> main AP -----> intermediate======>intermediate2 --------> wireless client
(key: -----> wireless link ; =====> wired link)
Yes, I am aware that it's going to halve the bandwidth available to end users without two transceivers on two separate channels - this can halve the costs of setting the network up, so I may choose to live with this limitation presuming it will actually function reliably.
Also, can anyone reccomend an outdoor access point, reasonable omnis for the intermediate AP's, and a sector antenna in the mainAP. Something that's going to be basically be bullet proof, have a reasonable warranty (or alternativly, be disposably cheap).
