I hate wds
Iím working on getting wireless to work in this guys rather large house, and he wants to use WDS (or something to the effect of) to get Airport express N devices to connect to his Linksys WRVS4400Nv2 so he can have a good signal throughout the house, as well as use the AE to have streaming itunes service wherever he plugs in speakers.
When attempting to do this with the WRVS4400Nv2, we donít get anywhere. I went and set the MAC addresses of the AE in the WDS section, completely disabled the security, and when trying to connect with the AE, we get something to the effect of there were no other Apple devices available. That keeps coming up as I attempt connect. Iíve tried making it an WDS relay and remote, no help. When Iím setting it up, itís connected wired to the router.
So, weíre trying it on a WRT54GS, and the only guide that I have found is dealing with it on leopard. Here rgbdream.com Ľ Blog Archive Ľ Linksys WRT54G, Airport Express, and WDS it tells me to Set ďConnect UsingĒ to ďAirPort (WDS)Ē, but I donít have that option in Airport utility 5.4.2.
Has anyone gotten the Airport express with a Linksys router to work? If so, how?
Thanks very much.
