    Hello all!

    Suppose I have 2 routers that are connected wirelessly via WDS.

    What if sometimes, I wish to do a quicker file transfer by connecting a hardwire to each of the LAN ports of the routers?

    Will this create a loop, and do I have to enable Spanning Tree Protocol?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean on one WDS node hardwire a computer and on the other WDS node do the same and this way remove two wireless hops gaining better transfer speeds?

    You can and without activating STP.

    I mean connecting the two WDS nodes together by hardwire, temporarily.
