This is a massive and expensive network, which appears to require a full signal and configuration audit. It's quite possible that many of your problems are stemming from the APs you have already deployed being situated in suboptimal and conflicting locations, which is an issue with three-dimensional wireless networks.
I really don't see your problems being debugged by anyone short of an experienced on-site wireless network technician. I'm saying this as a person who tuns a one-man company serving two rural communities with wireless internet service.

Signal is only one part of the complete connectivity problem. Your lack of connectivity is almost certainly due to some other component, such as your second laptop having an incompatible static IP address specified, or no DNS servers specified.
First, ensure your PC is configured for a dynamic IP address. Once you have acquired good signal and connected, check to see that you have received a dynamic IP address. If that works, open IE and type in the numeric IP address if your EPA repeater. If you get a response, the problem is not your wireless connection or local IP address. Now type in the IP address 184.108.40.206 . If you get a response, your problem is that you have no DNS servers specified.

Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 220.127.116.11 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).
