Can someone please explaing what the difference between WDS dynamic and static is ?
With WDS static you have to declare the MAC address of the ap on twice site, with dinamic you have to declare nothing (but with this your network will be easier to spoof).
When should I use ap-bridge
Access point mode.
When should I use bridge
Don't know...i tryed it between two ap (first bridge-bridge mode and then apbridge-bridge mode), but it doesn't work. May be i committed some error....
When should I use station
When should I use alignment only
When you want to associate your client to your ap, place your ap in "alignment only" mode, and your client on "aligment" or "scanning", and the align operation will be easier.
When should I use wds-station
When you want to associate your client to your ap on wds mode, but you don't want your client act as an ap.
When should I use wds-slave
Don't know, sorry, never tried.
Here is what I am trying to achieve...
I have 2 access points with 2 radios in each - 1 80211a (wlan2) & 80211b (wlan1)
I would like the two access points to communicate with each other using 80211a (wlan2) and broadcast to my clients using 80211b (wlan1).
The first access point has an adsl connection plugged into ether1.
If possible I would like 1 SSID broadcast so as not to confuse my hotspot customers.
Can someone please point me in the right direction ?
Place your ap in "ap-bridge" mode, and your client on "WDS-station" (dynamic WDS) mode.
I wrote "and your client on "WDS-station" (dynamic WDS) mode
" becouse this will let you use Nstreme.
If you use "WDS static", Nstreme won't work (Mikrotik bug).
We have answer all in the same time!
