for this what u need at the remote building are
1. at the base station u need say an EOC2611P from Engenius Tech, Inc.
, configured as the central main access point AP with a high gain omni antenna.
2.at the remote site u need the same kind of radio but this time configured as a bridge with a flat panel antenna, that is if the embedded internal antenna does not serve ur purpose.
after the configuration and set up and associating the bridge to the AP, then plug in the bridge radio ethernet cable into a switch and from this switch have all the other AP'S to be used at the remote site configured and also plugged in.
let me know how it went
