WHR-HP-300N WDS internet timeouts
« on: December 09, 2010, 05:46:56 pm »

Has anyone sucessfully solved the issues with internet routing dropping randomly via WDS setup.

 

Currently, I have three routers WHR-HP-300N setup via WDS

firmware : DD-WRT v24SP2-EU-US (08/19/10) std - build 14998

 

Setup :

router 1 AP connected to internet modem:

physical internace:

Wireless mode: WDS AP

network mode: Mixed

Channel width : Full

Channel : 5

SSID : example

Security :WPA2 personal

Algorith: AES

WDS settings: mac address of router 2

 

router 2

physical interface:

WDS station

mixed

Full

SSID : example

WPA2 personal

AES

virtual interface:

WDS AP

SSID: example 1

WPA2 personal

AES

WDS setting: mac address of router 1 and router 3

 

router 3:

physical interface:

WDS station

mixed

Full

SSID : example 1

WPA2 personal

AES

virtual interface:

AP

SSID: example 2

WPA2 personal

AES

WDS setting: mac address router 3

 

Basically i'm daisy chaining router 2 to 1 and router 3 to 2. Problem i'm having is that internet keeps dying from router 2 and 3, reboots will clear up the issue but obviously that sucks.  I already tried changing to multiple channels with the same issue, (3,9,10, now on 5). Anyone have a solution to my woes?

Also, I cannot find where the logs are via the web interface..

 

Thanks

 

Update talked to buffalo support " no fix is available except the power cycle , or going to user friendly which does not support master to master WDS. Its being elevated to lvl 2 support. Hopefully they will come back with a better answer regarding a fix to this problem case #1497565"

 

Not sure what else i can do atm except deal with the crappy problem, might need to get a refund for false advertising.
