    I have 3 routers running dd-wrt and I am using 2 of them as a Client Bridge in wpa tkip mode (one is the dsl router and working as the ap)

    Is it possible to implement wpa2 to work in Client Bridge mode? I read something about a limitation of the broadcom drivers.

    Is there any progress / plans with wpa2 and client bridge mode?

    Last I heard WPA2 only works for standard and wds modes. WET mode however will work with WPA/AES which should provide the extra security I assume you are looking for.

    I am very happy with my 2x Client Bridge (Linksys WRT54GS and Asus WL500g Deluxe). They are running pretty stable.

    I am only looking for wpa2 support in Client Bridge mode.

    By the way, what is WET mode? I never heard about it.

    You can compare WDS with a "repeater".

    A Client Bridge is complety different, because it acts as a client and not as a repeater.

    Maybe WDS has the same limitations like the client bridge?
