    I'm trying to setup the diagram below. When I have WDS1 on and WDS2 on everything works great at WDS2. As soon as I plug WDS3 in, the Wan port blinks very fast on all routers and never stops, bogging down the wireless. I believe the problem must be on how you setup bridge mode to bridge mode (WDS2 to WDS3). Any suggestions on how to set this up?


    Access Point

    Bridge Mode
    Mac of WDS1, WDS3

    Bridege Mode
    Mac of WDS2

    Lazywds and auto-configering.

    I think Lazywds is messing up a little, shutdown all routers simultaniously and do a restart.
    The problem is that you have a loop (cykel) in your network and this is not allowed.

    On other way is to set your network in Bridge Restict = enabled.

    If I place in bridge restrict do I need to add the Mac addresses to the access point?

    Try taking the others out of bridge mode and put them in AP mode as well. I've got a similar setup running with three routers running in AP/WDS mode with the only thing different between the routers is WDS1 has internet enabled and the other two do not.

    bridge restrict = enabled => lazywds = disabled

    If you choose bridge restrict you need to input the MAC address.
