WDS/repeater security

Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:07 pm

Hi, i'm having some trouble configuring a repeater.
I have an AP working with Freeradius as 80.1x authentication working, as know i want to extend my network range with a wds/repeater.
I followed the http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Wireless_repeater tutorial, but since i have a security profile in my AP, i don't know if i have to make the same security profile in my repeater or simply leave it blank.

Can someone help me with this?

I found out that WDS does not support dynamic keys such as in WPA, it only supports WEP or WPA-PSK.
Is there a way that i can expand the range of my network through wireless links using 802.1x authentication?
