Note that the DWL-900AP+ will only bridge 30 MAC addresses. If you
have a large network, you may need to look for a transparent bridge
that will do more MAC addresses.

Well, before you add antennas, think about a pigtail to connect to the
Reverse SMA connector. You'll find that the connector will not bottom
out and appears to be loose. The trick is to unscrew the nut holding
the SMA connector to the plastic case, remove the gold lockwasher, and
replace the nut. Then the R-SMA connector will fit.
For 600 meters almost any type of direction antenna will work. If can
place the units in a window, you might be able to get away with
something crude, like an aluminium foil reflector using the stock
antennas. See: http://www.freeantennas.com/projects/Ez-10/
However, for a simple link, a pair of 8dBi patch (panel) antennas will
work just fine. http://www.fab-corp.com/J1.htm (look for 8.5dBi panels)
I like the Maxrad "WISP" antennas. Also, keep the coax cable runs as
short as possible as coax cable are very lossy.
