this last option seems the most straightforward, but you would
specifically need something that can act as a client bridge (sometimes
also called STA mode) and can authenticate with 802.1x in that mode
(that's not a given, even if the device supports 802.1x in AP mode),
so check fairly carefully.
ubiquiti nanostation is about the smallest of the ones I know that
have this option (I haven't tested it in this mode myself though),
it's very small but is really meant as an outdoor CPE/AP and only
has power-over-ethernet so may be a bit messy with cables...
(don't look too closely at the trick needed to build a non-WDS
client bridge, it's pretty disgusting ;)
