Like Jount mentioned, catching the 'power-up' phase of the AP's 802.11-side activity would be very helpfull. Also, it appears as though you were running one as an AP, and the other as an AP client... are you sure you were using the non-AP PtP/PtMP modes of the AP's?

Even if you were not, catching the AP/AP-Client mode traffic would be an excelent addition to the growing body of knowledge regarding the (apparent) WDS trickery employed by such AP's.
