    There are two configuration types for WDS; Wireless Bridging (No Clients-STA) & Wireless Repeating (With Client-STA).
    There are three authentication methods; WEP, WPA2-PSK & WPA2-TKIP.
    These standards can change depending on Manufacture and Model.
    These standards are not etched in stone, and there is currently no IEEE standard.

    My questions are:

    Witch AP configuration does Zeroshell support?
    Witch Authentication Method does Zeroshell Support?
    Can I Authenticate the APs and or the Clients using RADIUS?

    It should be supported any combination, but at the moment I cannot test them to be sure.
    Let us know your tests.

    I updated a Linksys router with DD-WRT (Linux OS) and tried to configure a WDS connection between the two and it did not work. The Linksys DD-WRT was to authenticating on Zeroshell.

    The Zeroshell IP address for the WDS was set to 10.10.10.1
    The Linksys DD-WRT IP Address was set to 10.10.10.2
    I did not use any encryption and broadcasting its SIDD.
    I tried the LAN and P2P option and DD-WRT but they will not connect.
    I tired turning off the WAN and still not connection.
    I even configured DHCP on Zeroshell and still no success on Linksys DD-WRT connecting.

    Using the Linksys DD-WRT as a client works fine, but that is not what I am trying to do.

    Can you provide me with some directions on Zeroshell end? If you are knowledgeable on Linksys DD-WRT and is to provide direction, it would greatly be appreciated.

    ALSO

    I am building a new Zeroshell router to configuring, test and push for deployment of a WDS Network.

    ***To Confirm My Understanding***
    On Zeroshell #2, I set it up as in AP with WDS?
    On Zeroshell #2 the SIDD and Security must be the same as on Zeroshell #1?
    Zeroshell #1 & #2 WDS must be on the Subnet?

    With this, Zeroshell #2 will act as a Wireless Bridge and the IP Address assignments will still come from Zeroshell #1, is that correct?

    Yes, it is correct.

    Hello,

    I have currently configured my Soekris board running Zeroshell in WDS mode and I feel it is working properly.

    I have a question about using Zeroshell for configuring WDS.

    Is it possible to use Zeroshell for configuring multihop WDS? For example I have one Root Access point(AP) and another in STA client mode. Both are connected through a WDS link. Is it possible for another motherboard running Zeroshell with WDS connect to the board with STA client mode and still talk to the root access point?

    I am talking about something similar to the one below. All connected wirelessly

    Root Access point —> STA client 1 –> STA client 2 –> Laptop

    If some one has already done something similar to this please help me out

    Thanks.
