Deciding on Wireless setup

I wanted to replace my Buffalo wireless Ethernet converter for something that I could place outdoors for more coverage. I purchased my Engenius Bridge/Access point when it occurred to me that I wasn't sure what I should setup.  I read a lot about repeaters, WDS, bridges and Access Points and I still couldn't decide.
I just want to place the device into a building not to far away and be able to connect it to a switch for wired users and also have extended wireless access for wi-fi enabled machines.  I also plan to put more devices up at a later time for extended range and connectivity and to offer wireless-N as soon as it is a standard or even MIMO routers.

If users of the wireless network you are thinking of providing are not scattered in different directions, installing an outdoor directional antenna would give you the best results at acceptable costs. Later, when you expand your network, you could use wireless access points capable of working as a repeater (Cisco Aironet immediately jumps to my mind).

Hope this helps.
