Which station firmware version are you using in host B? STA f/w 1.4.9
does not seem to pass beacon frames to the host driver in Host AP mode.
This breaks automatic WDS link addition when it is based on beacon
frames. However, if you send a WDS frame from host A on that link, host
B should detect that and add the WDS link (assuming you are using recent
Host AP driver version).
