You are looking for a rarely documented feature of wireless access points in which they can (instead of being an access point) connect to another access point.

You will need to study the documentation before you buy a WAP if you want to use it in client mode. In particular, while both popular Linksys and Netgear WAPs have this option, it is sometimes poorly documented or implemented. For example, every time you want to connect to another WAP with the Netgear product, you will have to set your computer to a special static IP. It seems like Linksys products are most popular for this task.
