Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has gotten hostap WDS working with a Buffalo 
They appear to link up just find and the interface wlan0wds0 gets 
created but
packets seem to be only going one direction.   If I tcpdump that 
interface I can
see the wireless client send packets but if I tcpdump the client I dont 
see anything
come back.   Guess it could be that the WDS implementation is not 
compatible and
the Buffalo is dropping the packets.

Config info:

hostap_pci: 0.1.3 - 2004-02-08 (Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at>)
hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wlan0
prism2_hw_init: initialized in 200 ms
wlan0: trying to read PDA from 0x007f0000: OK
wlan0: NIC: id=0x8013 v1.0.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.1
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v1.5.6
wlan0: Intersil Prism2.5 PCI: mem=0xa0000000, irq=10
wlan0: adding automatic WDS connection to AP 00:07:40:a2:c4:fb
wlan0: registered netdevice wlan0wds0

Thanks for any information.
