Most commercially available access points do not support bridging mode
between the WAN ethernet port and the wireless subsystem. Bridging
will work across wireless and the LAN ethernet ports only. Load
distribution is difficult (may not matter though given thin WAN
bandwidth). Availability and support might skew your decision to this
To avoid these, I'd suggest a wifi mesh. Look up www.meraki.com. Last
I knew, they were sold at $50 apiece. Do not have much idea about
local availability of similar systems.
