Dear All,
I have made a wds connection between two APs using the following commands.But now i am unable to set the essid on the interfaces.The scenario is as follows:
 
 
  Ap1----------------------Ap2
 
./iwconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode wds
iwpriv ath0 wds_add <MAC of Ap2>
iwpriv ath0 wds 1
iwpriv ath0 mode 11a
iwconfig ath0 channel 44
ifconfig ath0 <IP> up
 
I have executed the commands on both the sides and
I can able to ping Ap2 from Ap1 and vice-versa.
I tried to set the essid on ath0 so that i can associate client on it.
But  it is giving the following error:
 
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID"(8B1A):
SET failed on device ath0;Operation not supported.
 
 
Anyone plz help me in this regard.
 
With thanks,
Apangshu
