One hour after that I found this:

/usr/local/bin/prism2_param wlan0 wds_type 8

this fixed the problem with WDS not working. I now receive packets
from computers in the wired lan at the other side of the WAP11, but sending
anything to them results in:

AP: packet to non-associated STA 00:0a:27:d5:f3:38
wlan0: Could not find STA for this TX error

Any ideas? 00:0a:27:d5:f3:38 IS the Mac address of the computer at the other

(this already looks like a howto... I promise to write one
if I get this working.)
