    i have two routers of type:

    Linksys WRT54GL & Buffalo WHR-HP-G54, both with DD-WRT v.24 firmware flashed...

    I want to connect two networks over WLAN with the routers...i have already done this via WDS...(choosed LAN under the WDS dropdown)...this already works...but the problem is...each networks has it´s own Internet Connection and it´s own DHCP Server...

    How can I "block" DHCP over the WDS Connection..

    Thanks for your help

    By making the WDS--WDS link a seperate subnet - DHCP does not get routed. Try the WDS Point-to-Point option. I have not done so myself, but I think that's what it's for.

    Alternatively, if you have the 2 networks on different subnets already, you can make the one WDS an AP, and the other WDS a client (not client bridge), which should also make the link a routed junction.

    Make sure you don't turn on any DHCP Forwarding on any of the APs.

    I have already tried the point to point option for WDS but than the connection is not working any more....the routers do not find each other...

    In AP an AP Client Config NAT is performed, or? If possible i want to avoid nat in local network...mhm...

    NAT is usually disabled by setting the router/AP as a "router" not a "gateway".
