no that is no very handy if want some performance, a repeater eats
bandwidth from the AP.  

Best for performance 
- big antenna's antenna's  (reduces noise from clients)
- channel planning
- ap's in bridging mode (no routing or NAT)

In a classic E.U (U.S.?)
        - a server is in a server room
        - ap is in the class room
        - maybe use PoE (803.af) over your wired network
