    hello over there,

    i've got a question about hhow to configure wds on two linksys wrt54gs. both run on Thibor's HyperWRT WRT54GS 4.70.6-181005. :rockon:

    i didn't get wds to work. could you please tell me a step by step tutorial? :) would be nice of you. :cheer:

    i just want to expand the range of the first wrt54gs.


    sorry fpr my bad english but i'm a german guy. ;)

    UPDATE:

    now the ap's are "communicating". it isn't possible that WRTG54GS A shares IP's to the clients connected to WRT54GS B anyway. accordngly these clients have neighter access to the internet nor to the LAN. the client(s) show(s): "no or limited connectivity"

    what have i done the wrong way? :eek:

    what i have done until now:

    wrt54gs A:
    setup-> basic setup:
    ppoe

    Router Name: WRT54GS A
    MTU: Auto
    Local IP Address: 192.168.1.1
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    DHCP: enabled (starting ip adress 100, max number 50)

    Wireless-> basic wireless settings:
    wireless mode: Access Point
    mode: mixed
    SSID: same on both wrt54gs
    channel: 1
    broadcast: enabled
    WDS: enabled
    bridge restrict: enabled
    bridge restrict: wireless mac of WRT54GS B
    SES: disabled

    wireless-> wireless security:
    mode: wpa personal
    algorithms: tkip
    shared key: same on both WRT54GS
    renewal: 3600

    wireless-> mac filter-> disabled

    wireless-> advanced wireless settings:
    transmit power: 67%
    rest is default


    wrt54gs B:
    setup-> basic setup:
    disabled

    Router Name: WRT54GS B
    MTU: Auto
    Local IP Adress: 192.168.1.2
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    DHCP: disabled

    Wireless-> basic wireless settings:
    wireless mode: Access Point
    mode: mixed
    SSID: same on both wrt54gs
    channel: 1
    broadcast: enabled
    WDS: enabled
    bridge restrict: enabled
    bridge restrict: wireless mac of WRT54GS B
    SES: disabled

    wireless-> wireless security:
    mode: wpa personal
    algorithms: tkip
    shared key: same on both WRT54GS
    renewal: 3600

    wireless-> mac filter-> disabled

    wireless-> advanced wireless settings
    transmit power: 67%
    rest is default

    thanks for reply but thibor included WDS into the GUI. and that's my problem. despite wds is inluded into the GUI i can't get it running . . . :cry: anyone else an idea about that? :cry:

    does nobody use Thibor's HyperWRT WRT54GS 4.70.6-181005? 8O

    EDIT: update post #1

    on Router B:
    set WAN Connection to Disabled and then
    set Lan Gateway and Lan DNS to Router A's IP.

    Hi muenstereifel,

    Did Thibor's instructions help you set up a WDS link? If they did, tell rest of us how you did it. If not tell us about that as well.

    Thibor, do you think you could put in an "Afterburner" (enable/disable) button under "Advanced Wireless Settings" (just to be sure it's off trying to configure WDS)?

    Browsing the the NVRAM only displays "wl0_afterburner=auto" independently of how I configure the WRT54GS (that's at least my experience).

    Thanx for an excellent firmware :)

    An Afterburner button is not required and will not be added, as afterburner is automatically disabled if a wds link is activated.

    Hi, another newbie here trying to setup a WDS link between two WRT54GS units, with Thibor Nov. 20, 2005.

    Can I ask - exactly what do you mean by the above quote? I'm not sure where in the web gui to do what you ask.

    Ahh, I think that's under "Advanced Routing". I've got my routers connected without doing that bit, but I haven't tried a wireless client yet...

    No, wait...it's under Basic Setup.

    Set your Internet Connection to "Disabled", and then boxes will open where you can set your LAN Gateway and LAN DNS info.
