    Hi,

    WDS is required !
    On each AP, you have to set the MAC address of the other one...
    Same channel on both but the SSID can be different...
    WEP security works well but WPA, WPA2 works only with some devices...

    Sorry, I'm still using v23 and WDS works fine as I described.

    Now, I have a doubt because my last succesfull test was the following: WRT3---WAG1---WAG1 and I was thinking the WRT capable to replace easily the central WAG less powerful. I have to check...

    May be the v24 repeater mode is to don't cross the MAC addresses...
