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.
