    WPA Personal is the "highest" supported in WDS, I've heard.

    I recently had grief with Wireless Ethernet Bridge mode and WPA2, so don't be surprised if WPA2 doesn't work.

    I'd personally choose WPA Personal with TKIP/AES + a good strong key and a 10 - 30 minute renew interval.

    My Config:
    --> 1 AP + WDS
    AP with Tomato:
    WDS router: DD-WRT V23 SP2 micro
    WPA2 + AES is running without any problems :)

    thats nice to know that WPA IS supported under WDS,

    I've been trying to get my wrt54gs with thibor 15c firmware working with my airport express (firmware V6.3), weird thing is that WDS works if you have no encryption or WEP encryption but it doesn't seem to work with WPA. I have now switched back to WPA encryption without WDS working and it seems all happy.

    any suggestions on how to get WPA working with WDS would be appreciated.
    WRT54gs is version 2.
