Thread: WDS/bridging mode - at wits end.

    WDS/bridging mode - at wits end.

    I'm using Oleg's latest firmware 1.9.2.7-7b

    I have a working OV511 webcam (w00h00) and have setup samba. All that's left to do is get it working as a client to my WRT54G.

    I have told it to use workgroup, assigned a name, added the MAC address to the WRT54G (and I've tried it with MAC protection turned off just in case you're wondering) and added the WRT54G's MAC into the remote bridge list.

    I've tried it with the channel set to the same as the router (under interface) and different channels. I've tried setting it to 54G LRS with 54G protection on and off.

    WEP is enabled on the linksys - fair enough it can be cracked easily but we're in a small neighbourhood and no-one uses encryption at all - plus my parents Acer laptop just resets itself if we use WPA. I've used the same passkey in the only place it seems to go and checked the WEP keys are the same.

    Still it refuses to connect! Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    The WRT54G is running HyperWRT (latest)

    Perhaps WDS isn't what I need - I only want the WL-HDD to run as a webcam, online storage and perhaps as a port I can plug my xbox into.

    OK, here's my WRT solution.

    1.) Don't use HyperWRT, use DD-WRT. Muuuuuch better
    2.) It works!

    w00h00!
