At home I'd like to configure one of my wifi routers to serve as a WI-FI signal extender. Since my main router is OpenWrt-based (Backfire 10.1.3), I'd like to use it for that purpose.
I've looked into the problem and found that there is "Access Point (WDS)" option available in wifi interface setup. I thought this looks promising, especially since I've managed to configure my other router in that mode, too.
However switching that option "on" doesn't do a thing. I've tried manually adding BSSID of the other side (WDS client) to /etc/config/wireless, but it didn't work. I still don't know where to configure security settings for the networks to pair (my network is WPA2 encrypted).
The modem that would become a WDS client isn't running OpenWRT and I'm unable to get it installed there, so I'm trying with its current OS. But still, the main issue is with configuring OpenWRT side.
The first one gives not too many information, the second is rather outdated. Doesn't seem to work :(
