Are you talking about configuring an AP as a repeater, if this is the case, the only disadvantage of using a second AP as a repeater is that it will half the thru put. Another thing to be aware of is, it will not double the range of the existing AP, but only increase the range by 50%.
There is a pretty good paper on the topic called "Wireless LAN Architectures : Distributed Access Points Vs. Centralized WLAN 'Switches'" available from LXE, Inc. It is available for free after you complete a free registration. This URl will get you to the download page: http://www.bitpipe.com/detail/RES/1080846177_706.html
There are pros to a dumb AP configuraiton. I have found that having the AP right were you need it and doing a Site survey to assertain the correct placement of the AP's is much better that having a 'dumb' antenna connected to a ethernet cable. In a large industrial WLAN installation, I would use seperate AP's and manage them with a WLSE. If you have a smaller network, you could use dumb AP's. The switch connecting the dumb AP's would have to be redundant too!
