Re: WDS to multiple AP's

please post configs of the AP , Stations and the repeaters too. You are having 2 radios on the same board or one radio does both the repeating and as AP too. My advise if you can avoid WDS please do. Just do the PTP with one radio and AP with an alternate radio

Re: RB433 for hotel in-room hotspot

you will need more routerboards , but it all depends on how the rooms are placed and which antennas you will use. but definately you will need some high gain antenna for a good reception in the rooms. The routerboards should be able to handle the authentication of only 12 rooms
