Either will work fine, but you will get a better signal if you use one in wireless access point mode, in other words have it connected to your router by a cat 5e cable.

In repeater mode it will cut your bandwidth by at least half and needs to be close enough to the router to receive a decent signal, and not at the edge of reception.
