    WL-HDD and WDS

    Hi,

    did anybody test WL-HDD with WDS already?
    Does it work fine?
    At least with Oleg firmare it should work, or am I wrong?


    ALBI...

    It also works in original firmware (Hybrid mode) with a WRT54G with Alchemy Fw.

    Hi,

    i am trying to get the WL-HDD working with a WRT54G over WDS.
    But i didnt manage it until now.
    WL-HDD is original 1.2.3.0 firmware
    WRT54G is brainslayers DD-WRT V21 firmware (based on Alchemy)
    How did you get it to work?

    Could you post your settings on WL-HDD and WRT54G?

    Thanks

    Hi! i'm not @home at the moment so only rough overview:
    Asus is setup to Hybrid mode with MAC address (wireless) of WRT54G in access list and "lazy wds" is switched to off. (on Asus afair it's called security) => IP 192.168.1.220/24 (Fw 1.2.3.0 and 1.2.3.2 were working)

    WRT (RC5a)
    AP Mode IP 192.168.1.1/24 (WAN is switched of => no DSL yet)
    WDS => P2P => IP192.168.1.221 netmask 255.255.255.0 (255.255.255.252 also worked) lazy WDS is on (i don't know when i switch it off there will be no connection even if the MAC of WL-HDD is inserted maybe a bug of rc5a)
    At the moment i have a small prblem with my proxy in localnet and also i try to flash Jockeys firmware on WL-HDD so i do not know exact when i can continue testing... but these setting are for shure

    both are using same channel and same WEP key but for testing purpose you can also start without WEP (that was what i did)

    OK, you have lazyWDS on...
    maybe thats it.

    My WRT (Status-Wireless) showed me the wds-connection yesterday.
    I thought: Wow. thats it. But unfortunatly i could not ping from one side to the oter. I also couldnt ping the WRT from a client connected to the WL-HDD by wire.

    I will try lazyWDS on.
    would be very happy if you could make screenshots of your config. (When available)

    Are you using WEP / WPA / no security on the WDS-Connection?

    Thanks

    yeah... because it will not work without
    (i read in RC6a the fixed a bug with WDS but nobody was able to tell me which one ) i use it with WEP64 (but also WEP128 was working)

    wds: wlhdd as client is not reachable

    i own the fritzbox 7050 and the wlhdd (with newest fw from oleg!)
    the wlhdd is running in hybrid mode and the fb 7050 is the master (w. WEP128)
    wds is running fine. it doesn't matter which ap i'm connected. i can always in the internet connect to the fritzbox and so on. what i can't do is:
    if i'm connected to the fritzbox ap (checked by mac adress!), i'm not be able to enter the wlhdd (no ftp, http or samba!). i'm able to enter the dbox2 i've connected with the wlhdd by lan, but not the wlhdd.
    if i'm connected to the wlhdd ap, i'm able to enter all services (smb, ftp or http!)

    do you know a trick? maybe it works for me if i can chose that i'm get connected to the wlhdd ap. do you know a way (intel centrino wlan tool!)?

    thx a lot

    best regards
