Linksys and Buffalo airstation with WDS
« on: January 07, 2012, 11:41:38 am »

I ONLY signed up for tihs thread so I could respond to a thread post but the way the sign up process works I can't find the tread. Plus a lot of work just to post something ..


Anyway, someone was trying connect a Buffalo AriStation with a Linksys ..  I got it to go in about 5 minutes, but my linksys is running DD-WRT which may have helped.


1> Linksys running DD-WRT, working as a wireless AP, tested and working well using Channel 1. No security.  ( subnet)

2> put the mac address and SSID of buffalo in the  WDS section of Linksys.

3> turned on buffalo, went to  setup, setup wireless, open, and selected WDS AP.  Set the channel to 1.

4> put the MAC address of the Linksys in the WDS section of buffalo.

5> Set the ipaddres to, turned off dhcp server

6> applied settings and it worked. logged into the linksys page the DDWRT shows signal strength of 50% for WDS client.



Model: WZR-HP-G300NH
