WDS is a nice way to join different access points in wireless networks 802.11b, just because is cheap (even the performance it's not great). With just one card (or AP) you can both get client stations and connect to other(s) AP. WDS it's also used as repeater for wifi networks.
I'm using OpenBSD as OS for my old-PC-based APs for some time in my local wireless community, but with the opportunity to get connectivity between 2 AP seems I'm should switch to Linux (we're currently using some SMC with LinuxAP flashed) because I cannot find info about WDS stuff on OpenBSD.
Since we cannot afford two network cards per node, by now WDS is a must for our wireless community.
Someone can help before I swich off my obsd node for last time? :(
Anyone have any suggestions?
