Dang! You made me read up on WDS.. Wireless Distribution System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting stuff. Reminds me of the old Packet radio days when I was a more active Ham.

That bottom line:
"WDS may also be referred to as repeater mode because it appears to bridge and accept wireless clients at the same time (unlike traditional bridging). It should be noted, however, that throughput in this method is halved for all clients connected wirelessly."

Halved? That made me do a double take, until I remembered your connection to the WWW was a DSL.

I have the cheapest cable they sell at RCN. It's 5 Mbps. Just enuff..

Well it is only halved if you have 3 nodes. I only have 2.
I would be using Bridged mode, but then I loose all WAN functionality on my router. In my situation I don't loose any performance vs bridged, now if I added another hop over the same radio . . . . . .

My uncle rocks double and triple hops over WDS huge performance hit (22 meg cable), but it works so . . . .
