How To Config For This Topology?

    Hi, what is the best way to config two WRTs for this:
    ======= > wired link
    ------------ > wireless link

    [Router]=======[WRT]--------200yards-------[WRT]

    So theres one building with the internet. Then a wire from that building to the next door. Inside there is a WRT and a large antenna mounted outside. This room has a bunch of hard wired computers to get internet from the first building.

    The second WRT 200yards away has wired and wireless clients. I have an antenna facing the building far away and another for clients. I also have another non WRT AP that can be used to service these wireless clients if thats better.

    Is just setting a WDS link between the two WRT's good? Will the first WRT be able to serve the hard wired clients or will I need an AP in there as well?

    Can I use client briding? Or any kind of mesh service?


    the 200yards i have good antennas setup - it works with blackbox equipment but mysteriously dies so decided to try wrt's.

    Stability is much more important than speed.

    Thanks
