In all my playing with hostap, i have yet to make WDS work.
AP1: is a DWL650 pccard have to ram load firmware. 6/2/04 CVS, SuSE 9.0.
This AP has been working fine since at least 6/2/04. Only KNOWN issue with
this machine is that 'iwspy wlan0' returns "no statistics to collect"
regardless of how many clients are attached... (and working).
iwpriv wlan0 other_ap_policy 1
iwpriv wlan0 wds_type 4
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:02
brctl eth0, wlan0, wlan0wds0
All commands seem to exacute correctly, and dmesg shows connection speed
changes showing the mac of AP2 (which makes me think it wants to work).
AP2: DWL520 pci card have to ram load firmware. Same SuSE, same CVS
iwpriv wlan1 other_ap_policy 1
iwpriv wlan1 wds_type 4
iwpriv wlan1 wds_add xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:01
Now, AP2 has 3 ifaces, eth0, wlan0 (managed, but not associated to another
AP), wlan1. The extra interface could be eliminated if WDS would work.
Also, the interfaces are ROUTED not bridged. Do i need to use bridging? If
so, bridge what to what? AP1 has 1.7.4, and AP2 has 1.5.6 firmware.
What other info can i provide (and what commands to get it) to help
troubleshoot this problem? Thanks all
