You can configure 1100, 1130, 1200, 1230, 1240, and 1250 series access points as workgroup bridges. In workgroup bridge mode, the unit associates to another access point as a client and provides a network connection for the devices connected to its Ethernet port. For example, if you need to provide wireless connectivity for a group of network printers, you can connect the printers to a hub or to a switch, connect the hub or switch to the access point Ethernet port, and configure the access point as a workgroup bridge. The workgroup bridge associates to an access point on your network.

If your access point has two radios, either the 2.4-GHz radio or the 5-GHz radio can function in workgroup bridge mode. When you configure one radio interface as a workgroup bridge, the other radio interface the other remains up.

Using 5GHz, with channel bonding and at least 2 streams going on each channel, you can get up to 300Mbps data rate. If you tweak the configuration (short guard interval/packet aggregation), you may get 140-180Mbps of throughput.
