I have two Mikrotik devices which were configured with WDS. It stopped working. The logs look like it never had WDS, but I can't see what changed. Suspiciously odd, but it looks like nothing changed except the logs say WDS died... I've attached screenshots.

Hi,

have you tried rebuilding the bridge again?

from your log pictures, it doesnt show much information, other than the fact the two devices seems out of sync

i found a guide to -setup WDS in case you need it

Thanks. I see the document is by Chris Sutherland from Miro Distribution. The devices were bought from Miro and I asked Miro the same question earlier today. They could not solve the problem, which makes me think the problem may be hardware failure rather than configuration. Unfortunately I don't have enough information and was hoping to get something I could give Miro to assist with troubleshooting the issue.

Hi,

it does seem posible for hardware failure, are the devices connected to a surge protector or battery of some sort?

No. They are indoor on a UPS supported power circuit. Do you ask this because the devices are known to be unreliable? (I have before witnessed a Mikrotik device rebooting for no reason)

No, they are reliable, and very affordable

just that all networked equipment should have some level off fault tolerance/protection in regards to power
