If you're trying to create a wireless bridge, that's one thing, but
those devices may go that far, but almost certainly won't enter a
building. We have had a building on our campus connected with a couple
Cisco 1300 WAPs in bridge mode. We've not been real happy with the
stability, but I'm not sure it's the WAPs fault.
