    I have messed with this for several hours and I am sure that I
    am missing something simple


    mode AP

    name AP
    ssid AP

    internet DHCP
    local ip


    Mode client

    name AP
    ssid AP

    internet disabled
    local ip

    Setup WDS on second router

    the above works in client mode but when I try to change to AP
    mode in the second router , It drops my connect to router 1

    I need the second router to accept wireless clients so I need this
    to work in AP mode I believe because I can't see the router with
    my wireless card unless I set it to AP.

    any help would be appreciated.

    What version of software?

    I have WDS working just fine from a v2.2r2 box to a *cough* Talisman 1.0.5 unit.

    You may need to power-cycle both WRT after major changes like that.
