    It has been discussed in other topics already, but I would like to collect this now in one topic. It's about the following.
    I have 1.01.01 UK firmware and still have no WDS in my options. But when I look at other website, ohter people talk about a firmware upgrade and the enable WDS. Does anybody know which firmware I need then?
    Here is a website saying this:

    Hi,

    From Whirpool forum :

    "WDS will not be included in the next official release, however it will be worked into a release down the track. Sorry for those guys waiting on it, wanted to make sure we got things right with what is already there."

    ok. that is clear.

    I hear sounds that there will be / is a alternative firmware, like hyperwrt, but for the WAG54G.

    Is there any truth in this?

    You need to put into each product the MAC address of the other one...

    Unfortunately, as there is no detailled specifications for WDS, the manufacturers implement it as they want.
    Consequently, that works often only with the same products !
