You want it to repeat?

If thats the case they have a "AP-Repeater" under the Wireless Mode dropdown box....

Did you try 5.3.5 ? It is still available at the UBNT download page.

I have a WDS link in 5.5.1RC. Don't forget that the only encryption that will work is WEP.

Is it just me, or does the new "AP-Repeater" "WDS Checkbox" GUI changes that UBNT made to the Wireless settings in their radios, make NO sense what so ever??

It was simple and straight forward with the original (Pre 5.5.x) versions. Now I'm not quite sure what the hell came over them. With these new settings, is it now possible they can be a universal repeater (Repeat a linksys AP for example)?

I just don't get the logic/point of the change. It made sense before, if there's no new functionality, why change all the terminology?

I got to deal with a particular Alvarion SE several times and every time I would ask why they did things differently, his response was "It's the Alvarion way, we know best ". I stopped asking as I already knew the response. I guess it's now UBNT's turn.

5.3.5 does work so that's for that advise. As to the changes to the new software. Don't ask me I am a canopy fanboy.

"It's the Alvarion Motorola Canopy way, we know best".

=P Line crossed Justin... =P

It is my experience that every vendor does it... When alvarion was breezecom, they did not do it. Now they all do.

Moto did it, and we called them on it. They stopped. Their track record is much superior to Ubi's track record.

But then their SMs were $225 or so a pop...
