I have come across a strange occurnece and not sure what is the casue. I WDS to RB411u boards toghther. Board A plugs directly into router for internet Board B is the stand alone unit.
Everything works fine except if I do not have anything plugged into the LAN port of Board B I can no longer communicate with it. Clients can still connect up to and surf from it but I can no longer remote mange into it. As soon as I plug back into the lan por I can then remote mange back into the AP.
In my setup I have the lan, wan and wds ports all bridged togther, and the bridge port has the IP address. I have treid remove the lan from the bridge disabling the lan and also just asign an IP to the wan port of which none of this works.
In the end I want to be able to remote mange Borad B while it is in wds mode and nothing plugged into the lan port of it.
