Router, bridge, or repeater for long distance wireless?

  1. Apr 6, 2012 #1

    What will give the best connection over very long distances, miles? A router, ethernet bridge, or repeater? And why?

    I am going to use a dish antennas and transmit at 1 watt.

    Yes, I read wikipedia, and have been unable to determine what would be best from it.
