DD-WRT: Setting up a WDS for your home. (wireless distribution system)

WDS is similar to repeater mode that we've already covered, except it is more of an extension of the same network. seamless transitions from one router to another.

Great for Multi level homes, Garage, Office Buildings, etc.

I've noticed a drastic improvement in throughput between devices and to the internet, the 2nd router means an extra jump to get to the internet, but the difference in ping is marginal.

This is the way to have a repeater if you own the network that you're repeating. It is much more reliable, and offers many advantages, security being a big one in my mind.
