WDS and WPA: working?

Hugo,

That issue is a function of the chipset, and if the AP manufacturer
decided to take advantage of it.  From what I've seen, WDS only supports
WEP encryption.  Agere's chipsets only support WEP for WDS, as well as
many of the AP's I've done compatibility testing against.  It's not a
function being blocked by hostap ( I think)

I've got a WDS based wifi net with one hostap based PC and some LinkSys
WRT54G
AP's. The system is working properly with WEP104 encryption. I tried to
upgrade
it to WPA-PSK encryption with no success, because in WPA with hostapd i
can't
get WDS links up (seems like the AP's don't try to auth to hostapd). I
am using
the stable driver and hostapd version (0.2.5) and station firmware 1.7.6
on a
prism 2 chipset.

Someone can point out if this is working on CVS or development version?
Or maybe
i should use another auth system different from PSK for that
configuration to
work? I can't find references in the changelogs, and i can't find much
information about that matter in the list.

Thanks.
