I had to change some network connections on my Buffalo WHR-G54S based network. I changed the router names, passwords, User IDs. I can log into either WHR-G54S from a system connected to it via the LAN ports. I can ping the connected router. But I can't connect via wireless between them. When I run site survey from the second WHR-G54S, under "Open" it says No.
Router 1 Connects to internet (this is through it} AP mode, Mixed, WPA-PSK TKIP, DHCP Server enabled, Loopback Disabled
Router 2 Client Bridge, Mixed, WPA-PSK TKIP, DHCP server disabled, DHCP forwarder, Loopback disabled.
I saw Router 1 would disappear from the sites under system information. This does not appear to be a power issue, since the signal at #2 is about 63%.
I did check WIKI, searched the DD-WRT forums, tried Google Groups. Most mentions [perhaps all] of using the site survey just tell you to hit Join, but don't talk about what to do if a site shows up as not open. Hitting Join results in a message that you have been added as a client, but no DHCP lease shows up, the router #1 fades in and out [disappears then reappears].
Can someone point me to a more detailed description of DD-WRT's "Site Survey"? The help page has about one sentence on it...
