3 x Cisco AP 1130AG's, one SSID

Hi all,

I have 3 Cisco AP 1130AG's set up that I want to create a single SSID for, without using an external AAA device.

The following article has seems to have a nice way of doing this on the 1130AG: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps458/products_configuration_example09186a008059a559.shtml 

So I have 1 x WDS AP setup per the instructions, and the other two as Infrastructure AP's.

The problem is thatI cannot get my infrastructure AP's to register with the WDS AP.

I suspect the issue might be around this step:
"The username and password must exist on the local RADIUS server. You must define a WDS username and password on the authentication server for all devices that are to be members of the WDS."

My interpretation of this is that I add a username and password on both the WDS and Infrastructure AP that is the same.  Is that correct?

What other common issues might there be?  It seems so straight forward, I am surprised it's not working.

Thanks.

After some messing around, I have managed to get the WDS to see the 2 infrastructure AP's. First problem solved.

Now, my next question - the example uses WEP encryption, and I am not sure if this has anything to do with the AP's being able to talk to each other or not.  Could I just as easily use open authentication, WPA with a preshare key if I wanted to change this?

Yes, the AP's talking to one another has nothing to do with WEP vs WPA. You do want all three using the same method though.
