Let's say we have an old wifi modem-router that we use to go online. If that router does not have WDS but we still want to increase wirelessly the range of the wireless signal without adding cables,
Should we buy both a new wifi modem-router with WDS to replace the old one and either a second wireless device with WDS feature as well ( either wireless access point with WDS or a second WIFI router with WDS) to be able to increase the range of the wifi signal?
Does every access point available in the market have the WDS/Bridge mode feature?
Between these two choices, which one would work better for the purpose of increasing the wireless range?
1.- using WDS
2.- buying a really long antena to replace the old router's antena and try to make the signal get further away.
Is it true like they say under
that this access point would work as a repeater event if I connected it wirelessly to the old router which has no WDS feature?
