WDS and traffic balancing

    Traffic balancing over two wireless connections

    I gave up -.-
    Have a look at my network model.

    Both the WRT54GL routers are running DD-WRT v23 SP2 and are WDS'd together. As for the 3Com Office Connect access point, it's running latest official firmware, and it is also WDS'd to the router on the second floor of house two.

    The fiber modem in house two also acts as a router (which I can't configure at all since it's total ass), but I hope on replacing the 3Com with yet another WRT54GL and set the fiber modem to bridge only. Don't count on this now though!

    Two of the three computers on that floor are servers, and I need them to be accessible from the outside (just saying, since I plan on asking for help, and that must be taken into consideration). DMZ'ing one computer from each connection would be nice.

    Now for my question: Can I do traffic balancing between the two connections for computers connected to the WRT54GL on the second floor of house two (I wouldn't mind if all three access points shared their client load, but I mainly need it for that one), and if yes, how do it do it all?

    I'd be very grateful for any help on this subject.

    EDIT: I've bridged the fiber modem & router in house 2, so now I've got full control with an old WGR614 (v6).

    EDIT: Please note that it doesn't need to be a WDS network, as long as I can DMZ and port forward.
