I still can't find much information about WDS & whether it works, or not, with any kind of WEP/WPA.
aiui, it can't work with WEP, but _could_ work with WPA.
I've got a pair of WRT54G V3.x routers. Does _any_ of the third party software work with WDS and WPA? I've seen a number of people claim that it _does_ work but none of them seem to have explained how they do it.
What happens when a computer is hardwired to the repeater? Is the repeater itself being authenticated to the base station? In that case, does a wireless client of the repeater authenticate to the repeater or the base station?
