3 router WDS setup

    FAQ has an example of a 2-router WDS setup, I need a 3-router setup:
    #1 --- #2 --- #3

    Router #1 will be connected to the ISP and to the router #3 will be connected a temperature/humidity/pressure probe with RJ45 ethernet port and embedded web server. Through the port forwarding on the router #1 I have to be able to connect to the probe's embedded web server for remote monitoring.

    I'm not sure how to do it (even FAQ claims that it is possible), because router #2 (in WDS mode) needs to connect with both #1 and #3 and there is only one field to specify a MAC address of the neighboring router (router to which #2 wants to connect), so I can either specify MAC address of #1 router, then segment #1 --- #2 is working, or MAC address of #3 router, then segment #2 --- #3 is working, but I could never get whole chain working.

    Any advice will be highly appreciated,

    And you are using Tomato firmware? I show 10 fields to enter MAC addresses for WDS...
