wds not working


Hi,



I am trying to configure WDS. I have configured two of my laptop as Access Point with WDS enabled

I used the following commands to create wds.



The problem now is that the two apís are not able to ping each other.



I have fedora core 4 kernel, & both APs are working in mode 802.11a, & moreover both are having same ssids..



I tried with different ssids also, but it didnít work !!!



What am I missing?



Anybody with any suggestions, please ??



when i set up my wds i had the following scripts on the participating

machines:

--- machine 1 ---

#!/bin/sh



wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap

iwpriv ath0 mode 3

wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode wds

iwpriv ath1 wds 1

iwpriv ath1 wds_add 00:0B:6B:30:00:02

brctl addif br0 ath1

ifconfig ath1 up



--- machine 2 ---

#!/bin/sh



wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap

iwpriv ath0 mode 3

wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode wds

iwpriv ath1 wds 1

iwpriv ath1 wds_add 00:0b:6b:30:00:01

brctl addif br0 ath1

ifconfig ath1 up





Thanks in advance J

I'm no expert at this, but an alternative script has been given as:

wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode wds
iwconfig ath0 essid "Normal atheros AP" channel 1
iwpriv ath1 wds_add <mac of the peer wds ap>
iwpriv ath1 wds 1
ifconfig ath1 up
ifconfig ath0 up
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 ath1
brctl addif br0 ath0
ifconfig br0 up

It might be worth a try!
