I'd like to understand how WDS+Multicast currently works in Madwifi.
I've read the post from Michael Renzmann, and if I understood correctly,
the drivers learns source MAC addresses (local and remote) like a bridge
does. When a frames comes into the iface the destination MAC is matched
against the two hashes tables and if it matches a remote MAC address,
it's forwarded with address3 or/and address4, depending on the matching.
But if a multicast or a broadcast frame is to be sent, the destination
MAC address is never seen in the hash tables, so I guess the frame is
sent as a normal 802.11 frame. So Madwifi WDS doesn't work with
Multicast and Broadcast ... ??
Am I right on this one ?
I haven't had a look at the code........!

The easiest way would be to give it a try in an actual setup. I
currently can't do that, but it would be interesting to know.
