    I have two G-sky outdoor AP/bridge(I neeed them to expand my WiFi coverage). Now I am setting the AP that is connected to the modem to AP mode and other to client mode. G-sky has option to reflect the signal you recieve in the client mode.

    "Enable Universal Repeater Mode (Acting as AP and client simultaneouly)"

    the G-sky AP also has WDS mode which I don't know a lot about. Which is better?

    Truthfully, I'd try to boost the output of the base station.


    Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

    Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

    Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

    Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

    Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

    [HAO14SD] Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit

    For 802.11n applications, this ZyXEL ANT1106 6db omni-directional antenna can be used.

    For really long range outdoor applications, this 24dB parabolic WiFi Antenna may be a good choice.

    If you have a wireless adapter that doesn't have provisions for an external antenna, one adapter that I've had good luck with is a Rosewill RNX-G1 USB Wireless Adapter. It's feature is that is has a removable antenna and will accommodate replacement antennas.

    This is just a sample of available products, many people have hi-gain antennas with similar specifications, but I haven't seen any other suppliers of signal boosters.
