I needed to connect 2 PC wirelessly over a distance.
Iam using two wireless cards, configuring them using wlanconfig in wds mode.
These are the steps i follow:
wlanconfig ath create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode wds
iwconfig ath0 channel 6
brctl addif br0 ath0
iwpriv ath0 wds_add <MAC addr of other Unit>
I can connect the two using this method and ping also works fine.
had few queries:
1. When I do iwconfig ath0.... i see the mode as Repeater. is this ok?
2. I would like to capture packets but i dont seem to see this as its in
bridge mode. is there any way to capture packets or use any power Meter s/w
to know the Power transmitted in bridge mode?
3. Can I connect another unit to this scanario. where all three can
communicate to each other using bridge mode?
how can i do that? Do i need to create another VAP ath1?
Pl help me.
