    Roaming support for switches

    I'm interested in using this new F/W in a production system, (84mW + 13 dBI sector antennas = 4 Watt limit). I need roaming as a requirement, could the F/W code writer add this a new feature.

    When a user associates with the AP, I need it to send an ARP out to update switches higher up that the clients MAC is now on that AP. And other APs (using this F/W) need to check if that ARP MAC is in their table (i.e. if they are the old AP) and forward any cached data to the new AP.

    Here is an example: 4 AP's North,South,East,West... a user should be able to go around the tower and as they change AP's the switch connecting them needs to know that they switch to keep a contant, un interupted connection. An ARP request seems the easiest way to update most switches, as they take note of the old MAC on the new port.

    Another thing I'm intersted in, can an AP be both WEP and open?... experiments with having some clients use WEP (to make them FEEL safer), and others use nothing.

    Refer to http://www.ciscopress.com/articles/article.asp?p=102282&seqNum=2 for more details of the AP requirements.

    Thanks, Tech in Central Florida

    I know WAP54G alreayd have WDS (its the bridge mode) but if it have WDS working at the same time when it´s in AP Mode it would be fine.

    In the freya fimware that can be done using the telnet and setting the WDS with the website configured to AP Mode. I never did it but read one day in the sveasoft forum when it was open.
    If WDS could be implemented in the WAP config page no Telnet would be necessary for now.

    DHCP address reservation

    Simple to implement but a MUST for 1000s of users:

    DHCP address reservation.

    DHCP server should have a list of mac-addresses (can be fixed length , for instance max 10) with an ip number assigned for each mac-address. DHCP server should search through it's mac database before assigning IP from the pool. If a mac is found in the table - a specific IP is given. If not - a first free from the pool.

    Lack of this was one of the main disadvantages of WAG54G shown in CHIP magazine review of routers. This is also why I didn't buy one too. I need this.

    This allows the servers in the LAN to have IP numbers assigned dynamically. This applies to print-servers, and other servers on internal network. Combined with NAT and NAPT this allows for single point of configuration. Additionally with notebook users who use the notebooks both at home and in the office many would like to have a specific IP assigned to a notebook.

    on a congiguration page with DHCP enable, pool start / pool end fields
    there should be additional list below:

    [mac address1] [ip_to_assign] [x] enable
    [mac address2] [ip_to_assign] [ ] enable
    [mac_address9] [ip_to_assign] [ ] enable

    as simple as that on configuration side.

    Is Mustdie still under active development?

    I sure hope it is !!!

    I would like to see two features that are NOT available in WAP54G but available in WRT54G's stock firmware (e.g. 4.00.7).

    1. AP Isolation

    2. TKIP+AES mode WPA security (i.e. allow connections from both TKIP and AES devices).

    That would be VERY useful for my network
