Re: cisco WDS

Well the WDS is what control the Layer 2 or Layer 3 wireless roaming. That way one client can make move between AP's and it will do a full Re-authentication in less then 1 seconds. With now WDS the client will disconnnect from the network and any application(RFID, MEDIA streaming), will time out...

Re: cisco WDS

carl what is the point in activating WDS if you do not know what it does ?

WDS is basically a way of controlling roaming over a group of L2 connected AP's

the server has the highest (255) priority number configured - there can be several backups.

Re: cisco WDS

on the HTTP GUI on the WDS page click the help button and read a little.

Looks like you need to invest a little time in a few good books/PDF's.
