    Dear Friend of the Forum,
    I am Italian and sorry for my not very beautiful English. I live in central part of Italy Between some mountain and I have not ADSL....but with my 20Km Wireless Network I have Taken her :)
    I have a big problem......if I config all my WRT54GS in WDS MODE, in my wifi network all work fine and the PCs are able to go in internet. I would to increase TX RATE and I would to have one WRT54GS in AP MODE and the other in CLIENT MODE but in this way I have a problem :

    1) In this WAY all are ok

    PC (192.168.0.91) <--WIRE--> WRT54GS (192.168.0.50 AP WDS MODE) <----> WRT54GS (192.168.0.10 AP WDS MODE) <----> WRT54GS (192.168.0.20 AP WDS MODE) <--WIRE--> PC (192.168.0.1 with INERNET connection)

    If I set all devices with GATEWAY=192.168.0.1 and DNS=192.168.0.1 all the network work very fine and all the device can access internet

    2) In this way I have the problem:

    PC (192.168.0.91) <--WIRE--> WRT54GS (192.168.0.50 CLIENT MODE) <----> WRT54GS (192.168.0.10 AP MODE) <----> WRT54GS (192.168.0.20 CLIENT MODE) <--WIRE--> PC (192.168.0.1 with INERNET connection)

    In this way the problem is:
    192.168.0.20 are able to ping INTERNET without problem
    192.168.0.10 are NOT able to ping INTERNET but I see that making www.google.ping I have this response:

    Esecuzione di Ping www.l.google.com [64.233.183.104] con 32 byte di dati:

    It will stop here whitout any other response.......so we can see that the DNS are working but the ping cannot come back...?!?!? I am making some big error in my network settings??I have not Firewalls or other type of filters enabled! It is very particullary because from config 1 to config 2 I changed only AP to CLient in some of the WRT54GS....?!?!
    Please Help Me
    Many thanks to all
