2 wrt54gl (DD-WRT v23) with wds. MAC-access-list problem hello, I am new user of WRT54gl with DD-WRT firmware, which I found out is the best thing I ever saw for wlan. Before that I had lots of problems with two WAP11 devices which connecting each other let me grown lots of new grey hairs and this experience is hoefully history for me now. my problem looks like the follow: netgearfr114W (a)________________wrt54gl (b)--------wrt54gl (c) ------MA401 (d) _______ Ethernet ------- wlan The Basics: (a) dhcpserver 192.168.0.1 netgear fr114W via Ethernet - wlan deaktivited only working as dsl router and DHCP-server (b) wrt54gl wds with (c) 192.168.0.60 Firmware: DD-WRT v23 (12/25/05) (c) wrt54gl wds with (b) 192.168.0.70 Firmware: DD-WRT v23 (12/25/05) (d) netgear MA401 on Notebook XP-Home all DHCP automatic ---> (b) and (c) have wireless connection with WDS ---> with MAC filtering on means ---> Permit only PCs listed to access the wireless network. (b) and (c) are inserted in the list vice versa the problem: 1. if (b) and (c) MAC filtering is off, a connecting wlan-card (d) is running with (b) or (c) well. IF a IP is already given from the DHCP I can switch off (b) and (c) alternating and (d) moves it connection to the running WRT. 2. If I switch on the MAC-filter for (B) and (c) and set the MAC from (d) in one of the two WRT's filter list it's working fine with this WRT. 3. But if I set the MAC from (d) in both of the lists (b) and (c) the wlan-card (d) cannot find the DHCP server any more and has no connectivity any more. 4. I also switched (a) off and config (b) as DHCP with the same result. 5. Also a pocket PC with a Netgear MA701 reacts in the same way. Any comments? ___________________________ update: I found out that this happens only if the client (d) has same signal strengh from both WRT's. Maybe (d) cannot decide which WRT he should assign.
