And WDS....So if you guys know anything i to do for it to preform as an Repeater Please fill me In......

    I bought one a few days ago, but I´m very unhappy with it. The transmit-power is so extremly low, i get only 20% through a 10cm wall. The router seems to have a technical error, or something like that. I used WPN 311 and 511, but also with this Netgearstuff, the connectionspeed was extremly low. :thumbdown:

    The WRT54GS as Repeater would not work, because Netgear has no WDS in the WPN 824 firmware. Maybe in the future...but not yet. :)
