It can be a good way of extending your network for low cost. How it works: First all access points must be the same brand and model sometimes even the same revision to work properly. WDS can be chained between multiple access points but the MAC addresses must be properly configured between the pairs. The access points must be located close enough to each other so they have a good signal.
Putting the access points in B only mode may extend the range by raising the power output. The eternal port on the wireless access points may be used to connect another device like a computer or hub. When to use it: Any indoor area where the wireless signal can easily pass through walls, ceiling or floors, like in a wood and sheetrock construction. If distance is more important than speed. A example could be the use of such an extension could be in an area where laying cable is not allowed because of historic nature of the building, or because of the presence of health hazardous material such as asbestos.
WDS is also an excellent solution to create a roaming network in an area where wired connections between the APs cannot be established. For example think of a convention in a hotel or resort, where a large area needs to be covered, and therefore multiple APs are needed. Because there is only one radio omni directional antennas must be used making WDS not practical for long range out door links or indoor links where there is signal blocking material.
Encryption using Other options: For long distance out door links a repeater can be created by using a bridge and access point configured back to back on non overlapping channels.
Since this configuration uses two radios bandwidth will not be reduced by the repeater only a small amount of latency will be encountered.
