Good...I Think it will be beter for PtP links AP functionality to be droped. One can put secod wlan card and make it work like AP, that was discused before. Main point is that such configuration (PtP) is used where infrastructure is bad ...instead of leased Line. I will Ask if is possible HostAp to support WDS (AddHock) without AP functionality? Will it be beter in such cases? What about it Jouni?
