Bandwidth with repeaters

Hello, One question: I know when I configure a bridge or access point as a repeater, I have half the 11 Mbps. but, when i connect a repeater to a repeater : What's the speed I get? stilll 5.5 Mps or it drops to 2.8.

Re: Bandwidth with repeaters

Every time you use a single-frequency repeater by itself you lose half (50% - 60%) of the throughput. Connecting one repeater to another repeater over the air results in losing half of the remaining throughput on each hop you take. By contrast, if you had a two-frequency repeater (for example, one box with two wireless cards) you would only lose around 20% of the throughput on each hop.
