WRT54GL and Wii unable to connect with a WDS

    Hey guys,

    I've looked around the forums and haven't seen any posts about this, so here it goes:

    I have 2 WRT54GL routers that are both flashed with DD-WRT V23 SP2, and connected together in a WDS. I have one in my office connected to my PC and the internet, and the other in my living room connected to my Xbox 360 so I can get it on Xbox Live. I recently bought a Wii and have been unable to get it to connect to the routers when they are in WDS mode. I turned off the WDS, and the Wii was able to connect to the AP in my office without problem, but as soon as I turned WDS back on, the Wii was giving me errors again.

    I've checked all over the web, and tried everything to get the Wii to connect, but I just can't figure it out. I'm still a bit of a newb when it comes to wireless networking, so I was hoping someone here would have an idea how to get my Wii to connect to a WDS network? Or is this a known problem with the DD-WRT firmware?

    Is there a reason your running it in WDS mode as suppose to one of them in clientbridge mode?

    I have my xbox 360 and xbox connected to my WRT54GL 1.1 (with WEP) with v23 SP2 bridged to my main router which is a WRT54Gv4 with HYPERWRT 15c

    follow these directions specifically and let me know if this helps
