    Hi all,

    - Router name : testAP
    - MTU : Auto

    - WN Mode : Mixed
    - SSID : WLAN (same on 3Com)
    - W Channel : 11 - 2.462 GHz (Channel 11 on 3Com too)

    Wireless WDS:

    - LAN (MAC from 3Com Router)
    - WDS disabled

    under status -> Wireless i got this:

    Mac : my wrt54gs macs
    Mode: AP
    Network: mixed
    SSID: Wlan
    dhcpd: disabled

    Clients: my laptop (do i have them connect from the lan?? i want to use wds WiFi for both ...)
    WDS SIGNAL: MAC Address from 3Com rssi 0

    it says WDS disabled....
    could that matter...

    i dont think ssid has to be the same either.

    at least mine isnt

    okay wds is disabled because im at the same network, and i do only a bridge of theses network areas. look at the manual, they also say choose the same SSID of both routers.

    So any other suggestions?
