Hi Guys,

Hope you guys can help with this. Im at a client installing additional wireless access points & setting them up in WDS mode with the older access points. I got it working but it drops the connections every now and then and get a limited connectivity notification. Could this be because the new hardware cannot operate with the older hardware? I have been trying everything but I just cant seem to get it right. Both access points are on the same channel, same ssid, same security key and i swopped the mac addresses around.

The hardware that is being used is D-Link Access Points:

DAP-1360 - New Hardware
DWL-2100AP - Old Hardware

Looking forward to your replies.
