    i´ve allready done alot of search and alot of tests but i can´t get it work. I even can´t telenet to my second router. Putty allways tells me Network error:connection timed out - so I think it will never work.

    My config:

    Router 1 WRT54GV2.2:
    No WEP/WAP yet
    DHCP disabled
    wl lazywds 0
    wl wds 00:12:17:D4:83:19 (Mac of router2)
    internet runnin perfect on pc connected by wire

    Router 2 WRT54GV2.2:
    No WEP/WAP yet
    DHCP disabled
    wl lazywds 0
    wl wds 00:12:17:D4:83:1C (MAC of 1st Router)
    wget http://www.myrealwebspace.de/bilder/kaid -O /tmp/kaid
    wget http://www.myrealwebspace.de/bilder/kaid.conf -O /tmp/kaid.cnf
    chmod +x /tmp/kaid
    /tmp/kaid -d

    But I think the main problem is that I cant even connect or ping my 2nd router.

    Please help

    OMG is that a new firmware?
    Ive done it by uploading it to my webspace and gettin it at routerstartup from the www.
    A working firmware would be great. btw I can´t get kaistation to work because of a large distance between the 2 routers - so I have to have the 50 mW setting.

    Thanks for the hint!

    I have been using this for a few weeks now - It works pretty good. Very stable. I have it running on both 2.2 and 2.0 hardware. I have a pair in WDS configuration and one as Wireless Bridge


    I love the sysinfo web page - make sure you enable info page on the administration page

    I don´t know. There are so many options to check but I don´t find a option for kai. I think i am not pro enuff to do every option wright. So I don´t have a wireless link to my xbox-router.

    Will have a look. Do I need the lazywl mode?

    Lazywds allows other WDS nodes to associate with your main WDS router without having to know their MAC address. If you know the WIRELESS interface MAC address of both routers, turn off lazywds and use the MAC addresses

    I can´t get no wl connection. Connectet via string to first router I have full Iternetaccess and access on Pc (con to router1) on xbox. But kai doesn´t run. These many options are confusing me.
    wireless - AP or Client or ADHOC?
    WDS LAN or P2P and what to type in after MAC-Adress?
    And Administration - Management OMG.

    I think this fw is great for pros. But for me I think it is frustrating. :(

    Maybe you should try a different firmware then if you only really want it the Kai. Most of the firmwares support the extra features the HyperWRT has. If you want fool proof Kai support go to get their custom firmware which is Linksys source with the Kai engine added to the firmware. teamxlink.co.uk Or as posted earlier in this thread, you could use DD-WRT but it won't be supported be Sveasoft and possibly missing the other bug fixes as I posted earlier. Please note to get Kai to run you need an account with teamxlink.co.uk anyway or else the Engine can't run properly which is to be add to the conf file.

    Disman_ca i´ve allready done alot kai´in but allways directly wired to the Pc without any routers. And I like it very much. The problem allways was, that the PC is in a room in the cellar and I wanted to play in my livingroom.

    I have had it running allready with hyperwrt - but it is very unstable. Thats why I tried the recommended ddwrt. But there was no way to get it to connect wl. I think the kaistation firmware would do a good job maybe but I can´t raise the transmitpower and my livingroom is in the 2nd floor and I have connection-problems. Now I have reinstalled the hyperwrt with my startup-script and everything is OK again. (Besides the unstable Kai).

    But maybe there will be a resolution that works for me in the future. (Hyperwrt with Kai!!!).

    So - many thanks for your help.


    Btw If I loose I can turn of the Xbox and blame it on the bad connection ;)
