My experience:

A friend of my gave me some used cheap dlink and WDS setup with stable
9.smth was unsuccessful.
I didn't dig a lot. The dlink was look like a shit and I gave it back.
If you figure out a proper device for WDS, tell me.
And, the most important, how much delays does it make...

I bought three 9Db antennas for my AP, the original antennas is 3Db. And
it improves signal very good.
If you want I can make a measure.. old vs new in terms of ifconfig S:N
or airodump PWR.

Try without WPA. I have a better speed without wpa, for encryption I use
ipsec.
