Re: WDS Links

I tried other_ap_policy in 1, 2 and mode 3, still no STA file in /proc/net/hostap/wlan0. I have both sides in Repeater mode if that matters. I don't need stations to connect to these AP's, just the WDS link. In case I forgot to mention, these are two HostAP boxes, not real (commercial) AP's.

Any other suggestions?
