Hi,

I have a setup that I want to do but before I order the stuff I just want to make sure it will work.

planned setup as follows:

3 Pico2HPs with dd wrt - first one in AP mode connected to computer by Ethernet - second one as transparent repeater - third one in client bridge mode connected to only one Ethernet device.

I read that to setup repeater on atheros devices(pico2) you need to setup virtual access point, will setting it up like this still allow the repeater to be transparent(not send its own MAC)?. Also the client bridge needs to be NOT transparent(SEND its own mac not the mac of the device connected to it).

The entire setup needs to have WPA or better, I don't think the AP and client part is a problem but does dd-wrt support WPA on repeater, specifically on ubiquity if anyone has tried it?

Will the repeating AP in WDS mode broadcast its own mac or the mac of the root AP?
And will the wds configuration change after AP shutdown and restart or work just as I set it up?
