Trying to connect a Ruckus 2111 with a Linksys WRT54G

    Hi all. I have an old Linksys WRT54G which has worked pretty much flawlessly since I threw tomato on it. I've recently tried to get a Ruckus mediaflex adapter (model no 2111) to talk to it, which is how I learnt about WDS. So far no or little luck.

    I have the WRT54G set to Access point + WDS. I've tried both "Link with" using the correct MAC address and "Automatic/Lazy". In both cases, there appears a wds0.<number> in the device list. The Ruckus appears to bond for maybe 5-10 seconds, then goes back to probing, as far as I can tell.

    Under certain circumstances (typically when both are freshly rebooted), I've managed to get the Ruckus to show up under eth1 with an IP address. In those cases, I can reach the ruckus via ping, telnet etc. However, as soon as I try to get a DHCP IP address on the unit behind the ruckus, it falls back to the same behaviour as before.

    Any ideas if this is doable, or if it's just a waste of time due to incompatible WDS implementations in Tomato and the Ruckus?
