Simple LAN WDS configuration


Connect 3 LAN using 2 GW2347 and 1 GW2348 and they will be transparent for the diferent Ethernet subnets.

  GW2347_0 - - - - - GW2348 - - - - - - GW2347_1
     |                 |                   |
    LAN               LAN                 LAN

Will support Spaning tree protocol to alow the case when GW2347's were in the same Ethernet segment. This case:

  GW2347_0 - - - - - GW2348
     |                 |
  GW2347_1 - - - - - - -


The 3 LAN's are in the same IP subnet (for example).

The GW234x management IP will be in (for example).

All the GW234x has Winstron CM9 miniPCI cards into them.

Names of GW234x devices will be:

acbr51 with for the GW2347_0

acbr52 with for the GW2348

acbr53 with for the GW2347_1


All GW234x devices are with factory defaults configuration (all has their nvram erased using RedBoot commands).

All GW234x devices has ddwrt v24 RC 6.2 (or newer) flashed.

Configuring the devices

I only coment the parameters I changed or if the parameter value is important for our purpose.

IP Parameters

Setup->Basic Setup page

Section WAN:

  • Connection Type: Disabled
  • STP: Enabled

Section Optional Settings:

  • Router and Hostnames: acbr51, acbr52, acbr53 (each name with each device).
  • Domain Name: mydomain (put yours here if you want).

Section Router IP:

  • Local IP Address:,, (each IP with each device)
  • Subnet Mask:
  • Gateway: (leave in blank if you don't use)
  • Local DNS: (leave in blank if you don't use)

Section DHCP:

  • DHCP Server: Disable (Enable and configure if you want, I don't use it here).

Section Time Settings:

  • Time Server: (leave in blank if you don't use)

WiFi Parameters

Wireless -> Basic Settings page

In each interface I thanged this parameters:

  • Regulatory Domain: SPAIN (I'm in Spain).
  • Wireless Mode: AP (Will be a simple WDS).
  • Wireless Network Mode: A-Only (There are many home networks in 2,4GHz).
  • Turbo Mode: Enabled (Is not required, but I want to test it).
  • Outdoor Band: Enabled or Disabled. This allow you to select the indoor channels or the outdoor ones.
  • Wireless Network Name (SSID): myssid (I use the same in all interfaces).
  • Wireless Channel: 106-Outdoor-Turbo for acbr51-acbr52 link and 42-Indor-Turbo for acbr52-acbr53 link.

The configuration will be:

                  CH106                           CH42
  acbr51 (ath0) - - - - - (ath0) acbr52 (ath1) - - - - - - (ath0) acbr53
