I hardly try to get WDS running with two WRVS4400N v2.
The manual (and the web interface) says: "Note: The WDS feature allows WRVS4400N to connect with up to 3 wireless repeaters that can be either WRVS4400N or WAP200." But I wasn't successful by now in getting it working...
What I've done so far:
- Setup the primary WRVS as Gateway, WAN through Modem, LAN and WLAN using WPA2 Personal Mixed, DHCP
--> works perfect
- Setup the second WRVS as Router using the same WLAN settings, no WAN and no DHCP
- Enabling WDS on both WRVS, giving each the MAC address of the other
--> no connection to LAN or WAN through the second WRVS
I really need the second WRVS act like a bridge. Since the manual is saying that I can connect both devices through WDS I bought two of them. On the other hand I've now read somewhere in the community, that this isn't possible with two WRVS (?)
You can use the WET200 for the non WLAN devices. Connect the WET200 via Cat5 to the Ethernet port of the device you want to connect to the wireless network. You will need a WET200 for each device. I recommend configuring the WET200 for the correct WLAN network settings before you connect them to each non-wireless device.
WET200 seems not to be an option since it supports 54Mbit/s only; I need 300MBit/s...
But I still can't understand why it's impossible to access a WLAN network via ethernet operating the WRVS4400N with WDS. Looks like there's no solution (at least from Cisco) accessing a WLAN network through a bridge with 300MBit/s (?) This is somehow... disappointing...
