Why are you using one omni and one directional antennae? Why not two directional ones?

I believe he's looking at a possibly mobile situation (such as travel trailers for a construction crew???). I does make sense. He's using a high powered directional to get siganl to the remote, and omni so it's easy to catch the siganl. using 2 directions makes pointing a bit harder sometimes, and is easier to get out of alignment. I'd use 2 directional, but i can see the benefits of the omni.

For now it is just point to point to provide internet to one computer in the building but i told the wireless ppl that we may want to set up to provide wireless to that general area.

So, they said if we use omni all we have to do is add an access point in the building and move the antenna from the pc to the access point and the access point would then pickup the directional's signal and broadcast it in the new area.

So... do what now? They're stating that you can replace the omni with an AP? or use the omni with the AP? Is there a reason you can't use an AP with a directional antennae?

The AP won't be able to pick up the directional's signal. The AP will be a stepping stone for the computers on the remote site, but it won't be able to directly communicate with the main station. You'll need a router for this.

What we will have

Router -> AP -> 24dBi Directional -> Remote 10dBi Omni Direction that provides internet to 1 pc

What we may want

Router -> AP -> 24dBi Directional -> ?? Repeater or AP ?? with 10dBi Omni Directional to pickup the signal from the Base Station AP and broadcast the wireless signal throughout the building and general area.
