    I´m tired of waiting por Talisman Micro edition to run on my WAP. I would pay 20 for sveasoft but thay seen to be taking too much long time to release this firmware and I kind of need to setup this in the next 3 weeks.
    Freya 2.06 sucks preety hard on hardware performance. Mustdie is a little better but lack too many features.

    I know I can setup WDS and AP Mode at the same time by setting AP mode in the web interface and on the telnet issuing the command

    wl wds MACADDRESS (wl_wds is deprecated)

    by doing this I set both my wap as Access Points and one repeating to the other. With this I can have 2 cells of wireless network in an area of my city.
    Now comes the problem. I know that WDS only works with a WRT or a WAP hardware and nothing else. Will my network be secured if I let WPA activated? And what about WEP?
    I don´t know if WPA or WEP is supported when in WDS mode. Or this WDS mode can´t be sniffed.
