You shouldn't give two interfaces the same IP address (probably not
even different IP addresses on the same subnet).  If you create a
bridge and add your ethernet, wlan, and wds interfaces in it, then
assign an IP address to the bridge, then your box will answer to the
same IP address on all interfaces.  If you connect your wds link to
another box on the same network as your lan, make sure you enable stp
or you'll create a loop.
