wds mode in a mesh scenario

Thu Sep 17, 2009 5:39 pm

Hi there!

Sorry for posting here i don't know if i have to post in FORWARDING PROTOCOLS sections...[probably yes].

I know that best mesh configuracion is using HWMP+ protocol of mikrotik. But thinking about config a MESH network with WDS + RSTP [or STP if there are other SO that don't support the rapid version...].

My question is one, and it was generated for reading two documents [http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Mesh_wds and http://mum.mikrotik.com/presentations/B ... h_Maia.pdf] that seems to be [only for me for sure] a little bit in contradiction.

The correct configuracion of wds-mode for wireless is:
/interface wireless set wlan1 wds-mode=dynamic
OR
/interface wireless set wlan1 wds-mode=dynamic-mesh
Thank you in advance,

Best Regards.

Both are correct but used in different scenarios.
/interface wireless set wlan1 wds-mode=dynamic
is used to add a dynamic wds interface to a bridge.
/interface wireless set wlan1 wds-mode=dynamic-mesh
is used to add a dynamic wds interface to a mesh without having to create a bridge interface.
