    Hi, I have two Linksys WRT54G routers, in AP-WDS mode.

    The network works fine, but the internet doesn’t seem to pass…

    I have dsl router at 192.168.1.5
    I have set both APs gateway to 192.168.1.5 and DNS too.

    Any other settings? Do you need a “routing table†screenshot?


    Can someone log on a WRT54G, that is in wds mode with another one, like a client?

    I ask that, to know if I am giving free internet to the neighborhood!

    and thats my configuration

    Firmware:
    Satori 4.0, non turbo
    Alchemy 6 worked
    Tested alchemy 5.2.1 but didn’t work.


    AP1
    Setup>Basic Setup
    Internet Setup
    Router name: WRT54G
    Host name: AP1

    Network Setup
    Local ip: 192.168.1.1
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.1.2


    Wireless>Basic settings
    Wireless mode: AP
    Mixed
    Nodowds
    Channel…
    Ssid broadcast enable

    Wireless>WDS
    P2P
    (Mac of AP2)
    ip: 10.0.0.1
    subnet: 255.255.255.252


    AP2
    Setup>Basic Setup
    Internet Setup
    Router name: WRT54G
    Host name: AP2

    Network Setup
    Local ip: 192.168.1.2
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.1.1


    Wireless>Basic settings
    Wireless mode: AP
    Mixed
    Nodowds
    Channel…
    Ssid broadcast enable

    Wireless>WDS
    P2P
    (Mac of AP1)
    ip: 10.0.0.2
    subnet: 255.255.255.252



    After done all of them:

    telnet to both Linksys

    brctl addif br0 wds0.2

    (It’s a bug, in satori 4 firmware AND alchemy 6. If anybody knows a firmware version that does not have this bug, please email me cmavr8@yahoo.com)

    New to Sveasoft. I have been using Alchemy 5.4a - 6.4a (current) in WDS mode.

    Success with this

    AP1 = attached to dsl modem

    AP1
    Basic
    Router Name:xxxxxxx

    Network setup
    local ip: 192.168.1.1
    subnet: 255.255.255.0
    gateway: 192.168.1.1

    dhcp = enable
    starting ip = 192.168.1.11 (so not to reuse AP1's ip)

    Wireless / Basic
    Mode:AP
    Mixed
    Channel 6
    SSID:xxxxxxxxxx
    broadcast = enabled

    Wireless / WDS
    Lan xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (wireless mac address of AP2)

    AP2
    Internet = Disabled
    Router Name:xxxxxxx

    Network setup
    local ip: 192.168.1.2
    subnet: 255.255.255.0
    gateway: 192.168.1.1

    dhcp = disabled

    Wireless / Basic
    Mode:AP
    Mixed
    Channel 6
    SSID:xxxxxxxxxx
    broadcast = enabled

    Wireless / WDS
    Lan xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (wireless mac address of AP1)

    On AP1 you should go to Status / Wireless and see the mac address of Address of AP2 with an rssi # of anything but 0.

    Without security (wep or wpa) "yes" you are the wireless ap for the neighborhood.

    WIKI guide has just been started.

    WDS internet sharing

    Hello
    I have fallowed the guide to sharing internet over WDS but it does not seem to work. I can ping both computers, but try internet and does not work. The Firmware is DD-WRT version 22r2. OneLoc question since you shut off DHCP on the one without the internet connected AP2 does it matter the IP address you place on the computer?

    SSID same for both and channel

    Ap1
    internet DHCP
    local ip 192.168.1.1
    subnet 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    DHCP server enabled

    Ap2
    internet DHCP
    local ip 192.168.1.2
    subnet 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    DHCP server disabled

    Thanks

    joshag:
    "AP2
    Internet = Disabled "

    Try disabling your 'internet connection type' :thumb:

    I'm not sure about this but I had to use Static DHCP as well in order to get them to work.
