    I have cable service with a WRT54GS (DDWRT V23 SP2)(we will call this home1) here at home. I setup WDS with another WRT54GS (DDWRT V23 SP1)(we will call this home2) at my neighbors house across the street. I purchased 2x9dbi antennas (from compusa) and installed 1 of these on each router (so each router has 1x9dbi and 1x2dbi). These have been installed and working great for about 2 months. I wanted to access the home2 from my house connected to home1. home1 is @ 192.168.1.1 and home2 @ 192.168.1.2.. When i type 192.168.1.2 i get the login window, enter the info, and then nothing. It will load about 30% and stop. When I open a terminal window and type sudo ping -f -s 1 192.168.1.2 and let it go, reload the router page it will load 100%. this is an odd bullshizznit issue. @home2 I can do a speed and tweak test at broadbandreports(.)com both are great. the routers ARE in line of sight (through 2 windows) and about 125ft apart.

    I might try to upgrade home2 to v23 sp2 and try again but I doubt that will fix.
    anyone have an idea?

    I also want to know if I can force the routers to use the 9dbi antennas ONLY for the wds connection and the 2dbi antennas for the local connection. I will open a new thread for this question.

    thanks everyone
