    Configuring Buffalo DD-WRT APs

    The lastest Buffalo AirStation APs come with DD-WRT on them and I'm a bit confused as to how to setup their IP.

    What I really want to do is set them to pick up a DHCP address from a reservation on the server.

    I can get them to work by setting a static IP but I'm finding the WAN setup page confusing.

    Anyone got one of these (or using DD_WRT on something else? ) and tell me what to do?

    regards

    Simon

    First you need to decide how you're going to connect your routers together. Check this link for info on that. I chose WDS since my routers are close to each other and I didn't want to use wires at all. Check the following links for information and tell us how it goes with you and which mode did you choose:

    I found my notes on configuring WDS on DD-WRT, thought it might be useful to you.
    This is the configuration of the second router but the same settings applies from second till nth router.
    Code:
    setup>basic setup>
    wan setup
    
    connection type: disabled
    stp: enabled
    
    router name: WDS1
    hostname:
    domain name:
    
    Network setup
    
    Local IP Address: 10.15.0.2
    subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    gateway:10.15.0.1
    local dns: 10.15.0.1
    assign wan port to switch : tick
    
    DHCP server : disabled
    
    Use DNAMasq for DHCP : untick
    Use DNSMasw for DNS : untick
    
    NTP client: enable
    Zone: UTC+3
    serverIP/name: 10.15.0.1

    SES/ AOSS button:

    Turn radio off at boot: disable
    
    Security>Firewall
    SPI Firewall : Disable
    nothing ticked
    
    NAT / QoS> UPnP
    UPnP Service : Disable
    
    Administration>Management
    
    web access : Http
    Enable Info Site: Enable
    Infor Site Password protection
    Info Site Mac Masking : Enable
    
    Overclocking : 200 MHz
    I have changed every router SSID to different name for troubleshooting purposes but after I settled down on settings and everything was working probably I changed them all to the same SSID to let my users roam from one WAP to another without dropping the connection
