I had the same problem as Steve, trying to bridge WiFi between two buildings.
I used the EnGenius ENH500, which is specifically made for this situation. It is fast, and has been rock steady for several years now.
They have more features than the average user will ever need (ex., DHCP Server, DNS server), but you can turn the extras off and operate in simple bridge mode.
When first testing my pair, I was able to bridge over half a mile, thru a forest. Theoretically they could bridge 5 miles, I think.
If you really want to geek out, Here’s the manual.
