Cheap and secure wireless bridge

I need to create a bridge between 2 locations.  Building A has Internet.  Building B has no internet.  Distance is about 250 Ft. I need secure connection preferably WPA.  I would also like the unit to function as an access point at the same time.  I need to be able to connect an external antenna so the unit will be inside and the antenna outside.  I don't want to spend more than $150 on each bridge.  Please do not give me a link to a network site's general page.  I would like specific devices.

Thanks

Does the Linksys WAP11 do WPA?

yes it does - but its 802.11b only - which equates to 11 MBs max bandwidth - is this acceptable?

I went with a WG302 from Netgear.  It does 802.11 B/G 152 WEP and can take an external antenna.  I called Linksys and they told me that unit cannot handle an external directional antenna.

Thank you though.
