I’m trying to set up a WDS network using a Wiz610wi, a WizFi630 and a laptop: to increase the range, the WizFi630 is placed as a repeater in between a device equipped with Wiz610wi and the laptop.
When Wiz610wi got started first (before power is applied to WizFi630), everything works fine and the WDS network operates well.
However if WizFi630 is launched before Wiz610wi, then WDS will never come up. The same situation happens when Wiz610wi network get lost for a while: the WDS will never recover.
Since I don’t have any influence on how the start-up sequence of the system will be done, could you kindly advice how to get WDS auto-reconnect in any case?
Here are the settings of the wifi modules:
- Wiz610wi: AP+WDS, Band: 802.11 (G), Channel Number: 7, Broadcast SSID disabled, WDS Mode: Slave, Authentication: Open System, Encryption: None, WDS MAC Address of WizFi630 added, Firmware: WLANAP_v1.2.5, 2013/09/02 15:40:25.
- WizFi630: Network Mode 11g only, Frequency (Channel) 7, Broadcast SSID disabled, WDS Mode: Repeater Mode, Phy Mode OFDM, EncrypType : None, AP MAC address of Wiz610wi added, Firmware: DS620P-4M-usb-sta-1T1R_v1.1.28-2013/04/09, 10:53:05.
