Bipac 3100SN different WDS modes

Post by T0ffer » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:44 am

Hi,

The manual is not very clear (at least to me!) regarding the difference between the different WDS modes of Bridge, Lazy and Repeater. Can someone explain these in more detail?

Bridge - is only to bridge the ethernet connection, you will have no connectivity via wireless

Lazy - where the unit will look for another unit that already has WDS enabled with the MAC address of the 3100SN entered into the connecting device eg router

Repeater - it bridges both the LAN conenction and wireless connection, so once set you will have LAN and Wireless connectivity.

I hope this helps.
