 Hi to all,
 
I want to check the WDS using the HostAP driver and the soekris board. I have a netgate mini-PCI in soekris board and other two APs are formed by using the compaq wl100 and actionte card (which are prism2 based cards),
 
the ethernet connection is given to one of the APs .....
 
AP-A configuration:
 
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:22:22:22:22:22
 iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:11:11:11:11:11
 brctl addbr br0
 brctl addif br0 eth0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds1
 ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0wds0 0.0.0.0
  ifconfig br0 192.168.1.1 up
 
AP-B configuration:
 
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:11:11:11:11:11
 iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:33:33:33:33:33

 brctl addbr br0
 brctl addif br0 eth0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds1
 ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0wds0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0wds1 0.0.0.0

 ifconfig br0 192.168.1.2 up

 
AP-C configuration:
 
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:22:22:22:22:22
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:33:33:33:33:33

 brctl addbr br0
 brctl addif br0 eth0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds0
 brctl addif br0 wlan0wds1
 ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0wds0 0.0.0.0
 ifconfig wlan0wds1 0.0.0.0
  ifconfig br0 192.168.1.3 up

 
also each of the APs shows the entry of other APs in the /proc/net/hostap/wlan0 dir. but the main problem is that only two APs can communicate with each other.  the last AP is unable to commuicate with other two APs.  what is the wrong with commands?
 
anything wrong with this configuration or there is restriction that only two APs can take part in WDS
 
please help me out
thanks and regards
