I need to setup a wireless network, for about 100 clients on an area of about 2-3 sq. km!
Now, I want you opinion about what will be better!
a WDS made of 3 AP's using 3 WiFi cards of about 100mW or one single AP - made of 3 router-boards with same cards etc.
What system will stand better and give a better quality?
Thx in advance!

What will your clients use as CPE's? Is the terrain flat?

If locating the remote AP's isn't a problem, I'd go with the WDS setup. Should have better coverage.
