    I have two buffalo routers with tomato firmware. This is the setup:

    Internet
    |
    Tomato A--------WDS--------Tomato B--LAN---computers
    | |
    Laptop A Laptop B

    Tomato A: 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
    Tomato B: 192.168.0.6 255.255.255.0
    Laptop A: 192.168.0.16 255.255.255.0 connected to Tomato A wirelessly
    Laptop B: 192.168.0.8 255.255.255.0 connected o Tomato A wirelessly

    Tomato A is WDS and AP
    Tomato B is just WDS

    The problem I have is that Laptop cannot contact Laptop B (ping or SSH) and I cannot work out why.

    What does work:
    Laptop A/B to internet
    Laptop A/B to Tomato B
    Laptop A/B to computers
    Tomato A to Laptop A/B
    Tomato B to Laptop A/B

    Tomato A routing table
    Destination Gateway Subnet Mask Metric Interface
    192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 0 vlan1 (WAN)
    192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 0 br0 (LAN)
    127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 0 lo
    default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 0 vlan1 (WAN)

    Tomato B routing table
    Destination Gateway Subnet Mask Metric Interface
    192.168.1.0 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 1 br0 (LAN)
    192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 0 br0 (LAN)
    127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 0 lo
    default 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 0 br0 (LAN)

    Many thanks

    Have u ensured that "AP Isolation" is not enabled on either of the routers?
