WPA Radius over WDS

    I have two WRT54G routers (Host is ver 1.1 and Client is ver 6). Both are running DDWRT v23SP2 Micro firmware. I set them up to communicate using WDS with no security and everything works great. The problem is I need to run WPA Radius and I can't get them to play nice with this security. I've read that DDWRT works with WPA over WDS, but will it work with WPA Radius? If it won't work...fine...but I would love for someone to tell me that they've done it and tell me how to set it up.

    Please help.

    No can do AFAIK. The firmware cannot do EAP authentication (I think), even though it can pass EAP through to Radius. Can do WDS with WPA-PSK though.

    If you WANT the Radius stuff, maybe you can make another Virtual AP - one with WPA-PSK and the other with WPA Enterprize/Radius, and use the PSK VAP for WDS, and the Radius VAP for clients. You'll need DD-WRT V24 for that. Have not done that myself, so I'm not 100% that it would work.
