Should I use Router as Repeater, Bridge, or WDS, and how?

    I recently purchased a 14dB gain directional antenna. I have a v4 WRT54G with tofu 9 hyper wrt firmware. My question is how best should I set up the router so that it will receive an internet signal from the network I have the antenna pointed at and then broadcast it wirelessly through my room. Is it possible to set the directional antenna to auto (receive and transmit?) and the other to transmit (therefore broadcasting omnidirectionally in my room?), do I use WDS to repeat the signal or can I bridge to experience no loss due to the resending of packets, etc? The networks I will be utilizing are up to a half mile away and generally unprotected but not directly accessible by me(other ap's). Thank you for your info ahead of time:)
