I want to connect 2 site's LAN with wireless, but no clear line of sight.
so i have to implement one more device on a building between the 2 sites.
Users on the remote site (3.) have to reach resources on the 1. site.
1.and 3. outdoor access points the second can be indoor ap (1242)
Please explain how can i do this? or How it works.
first ap is the root, the second is the repeater and the third is the non-root device?
It is possible? if yes please give advice, how to configure the ap-s.
I dont think that would work. Your building two can be the root and the others non-root, but you have building 1 as the root. The only way I can see this working is using mesh AP's, but then the price for that is a lot more. Point to multipoint means the building two has to be your root and you can have other non-root connect to that bridge.
Yes you're right, but what you think about that:

I want to do something like these!
It good for me if this possible with other devices.
It can possibly work that way but not using a repeater. I think you will need to mount external antennas, but if you have the APs, set it up in a lab and see if it works.

Thanks for the replies!
I made this lab below, and here are some problems.
(WGB= Workgroup bridge mode)
I want to made 2 point to point connection to connect the 2 sites lan and everithing works good until
4 wired clients are behind the WGB. (all 4 client can ping the router on the other side lan)
If more than 4 like you see in the picture, the fifth client pings dont work good, and random bad things happen in the network.
There is a limitation on wired client number, behind Workgroup bridges?
or it is simply not the way to connect the 2 site?
I attached the configs too.
Please give some advice for me about it.
