    i am currently running 3 wrt54gs in WDS mode, but due to the fact that the wireless speed goes down to about 50% in WDS mode, i want to set one client up as WET. Although my WDS is working fine, and i switch to WET, i cannot get access anymore. Any suggestions what i am doing wrong?
    IP adresses are ok, WirelessSecurity is the same, SSID is the same, channel is the same, but its not working. When i switch back to WDS, everything is fine again

    WET won't work in WPA2 mode. you haven't specified which security you are running but it's best practise to get it running without security first

    i am using wpa psik

    its normal to get around 1.2 Mb/s in WDS mode? and double that when not using WDS?

    ok, i cannot get it to work

    i disabled security
    my main router is
    no security, firewall off, same channel/ssid as wet

    the WET bridge:
    no security, setup disabled, dhcp disabled, firewall off, same SSID/channel as router

    but i get no ip from dhcp, and no connection when i setup my ip by hand
    in WDS everything is working fine

    what am i doing wrong?
