Default Repeaters, send/receive through antenna only, or base unit to?

I'd like to get an outdoor directional antenna facing my parents house (2 houses away), and rebroadcast their signal in my house. I’ve been able to connect to their network with a directional antenna connected to a network card and aiming it out a window but I want to be able to move around and after replacing my windows with Low-E my signal is gone. Do you know if repeaters collect signals through their antenna and repeat them through their base, or do they collect and repeat the signal through their antenna only?

I’d like to put an outdoor antenna dish facing my parents, which will take their signals and carry it down to the repeater base unit 2 floors below and rebroadcast it. The base unit needs to know what I do, get that signal and carry it back up to the outside antenna and broadcast it to my parents house. Do you know if repeaters both send/receive only through their antenna or, do they receive/send through both their antenna and base? Or how to accomplish what I want?

Hope I explained that someone helped me write it. Jennifer
