    I'm expanding my wireless system and I need some help/advice. Currently my main network is run off a AirLink MIMO XR. I have a WRE54g to expand my network farther out. I'm wanting to add a desktop PC (near the WRE54g) wirelessly through my WRT54gs. I tried setting up my WRT54gs using WDS, thus trying to eliminate the need for the WRE54g altogether, but could not get it to connect to the AirLink. Right now everything is working setting up the WRT54gs in WET mode. Transfers are slow to the desktop PC though. Is it possible to setup the WRT54gs to the AirLink directly via WDS? If so, I need some direction on how to get it up and working. Thanks.

    WDS is implemented differently amongst firmwares. I have not heard of anyone setting up a WDS link between an Airlink and a WRT54GS.

    I searched the forums and was unable to find anything either. I just thought it weird that the WRE54g works great but I couldn't get the WDS to work on the WRT54gs.
