WDS
OpenWiFi 2.0
Wireless Distribution System (WDS) supports an Access Point, Station and Repeater mode of operation. OpenWiFi 2.0 supports all three.
In the below example, the LAN side of the Access Point at the top of the topology will be wirelessly bridged to the LAN side of the Access Point Station at the bottom of the topology.
WDS-AP
WDS-STA
