Providing wireless to an out building using two Aironet 1232AG's. Repeater or Bridge?

 

I'm hoping to provide wireless access to an outlying building two using Aironet 1232AG's. My plan is to have AP-1 on the main building LAN with a directional antenna and AP-2 in the out building acting as a repeater.

Is a repeater configuration the ideal setup in this situation? If I configure a bridge instead, is it possible for AP-2 to still function as an AP and broadcast a SSID?


Also, does anyone have a 1232AG compatible antenna that they would recommend for outdoor use and a distance of ~100 yards between AP's?


Would appreciate any advice you folks have.

I would go with "Wireless

I would go with "Wireless Bridge" option rather configure it as Repeater. That gives more flexibility when configuring SSID/vlan on your AP in remote building. 

Make sure station role "non-root bridge wireless-clients" is supported by this AP model. Here is a few config reference when it comes to bridges.

Here is a Repeater config as a reference
