Re: Unable to connect to 2011L

I have similar situation with 711GA. It seems that the router doesn't boot up - there are no startup beeps indicating that. However netinstall works. It finds the device, partitions and reinstalls it, but after reboot nothing more happens. Should I return it to RMA?

Why do you want wds at all? Use 'station bridge' instead. It's so much better that way. And it works perfectly with nstreme!
WDS only makes sense if you need transparent bridging between non-mikrotik devices..
