I just put our 1st wireless access point into our wired LAN, and it works
great inside of our building. However, I would like to try to extend the
range to some of our outlying warehouses. What are some solutions to extend
the range of a wireles network. Are there repeaters?

Mike,

You have a few options for doing this, you could just upgrade the antenna in
the AP, you could get a 2.4ghz Amplifier, or you COULD get an extender.
www.fab-corp.com has one of the best selection of antannas and amps.

Can you have more than one access point, and roam between them seamlessly if
they overlap?

Yes, this is dependant on the AP vendor supporting Roaming; normally
supported and you must have the same SSID and WEP setting configured on both
APs.

(Also, when using add-on antennas and 2.4 GHZ amps you must be careful to
not exceed FCC regulations.)(You cannot just go out and buy a 15db gain
Omnidirectional antenna and 2watt amp, and flood 2 square miles in 2.4ghz
radiation)
