    I just started using WDS and have three router. I have two hooked up and going. I have a question on the third. Do I put the mac address in one router(gateway) or do I have to do both. Thanks

    I always put only the MAC address needed to establish the link. If radio 2 and 3 are WDS repeating radio 1, and both 2 and 3 can link to 1, then 2 and 3 should WDS only with radio 1. Radio 1 will of course have the MAC of 2 and of 3. If radio 3 is too far from radio 1 to link, and radio 2 is in the middle, radio 2 would link to 1 and 3 with 1 and 3 only linking to 2.
