Q: How to set up the AP-Client and WDS Connection
(1) AP-Client Connection
(2) WDS Connection
(1) AP-Client Connection
Topology:
Step 1. Use the static IP in the PCs that are connected with AP-1(Site 1) and AP-2 (Site 2). In this case, Site 1 is
“192.168.0.100”, and Site 2 is “192.168.0.200”.
Step 2. In AP-1, go to “Operation Mode” to configure it to Access Point mode.
※
You can also configure it to “AP Router” mode if the WAN port of the AP is connected to the
internet directly.
Step 3. Click “Setup” to configure the following parameters, and then click Save & Restart to save the settings.
1) Network ID (SSID): set to a unique value
2) Channel: set to a fixed one
3) Security Setting: strongly suggested to configure it.
In this case, we configure it to WPA2-PSK, AES.
Step 4. In AP-2, modify the default IP to the same IP range but different with AP-1.
In this case, the IP is changed to 192.168.0.252.
Step 5. In AP-2, configure it to “Client” mode, and click “Setup”.
Step 6. Click “Setup”, and then click Site Survey to find the AP-1.
Step 7. Select the AP-1 from the list.

Step 8. Click “SET SECURITY” to configure the Pre-Shared Key,and then click “Save” and close the window.
Step 9. Click “OK” and click “Save & Restart” to apply the setting.
Step 10. In AP-1, go to “Device Status-> Wireless Client Table” to check whether the AP-2 is in the list.
Step 11. Use command line tool to ping each other to ensure the link is successfully established.
From Site-1, ping 192.168.1.200, and in Site-2, ping 192.168.1.100.
Step 12. Configure the TCP/IP settings of Site-2 to “Obtain an IP address automatically”.
Step 13. Use command line tool to ping the DNS (e.g. Google) to ensure Site-2 can access internet through the
wireless connection.
The following hints should be noted:
1) The encryption method must be the same in both sites if configured.
2) Both sites should be Line-Of-Sight.
3) For the short distance connection less than 1km, please reduce the "Transmit Power" of both
sites.
4) For the long distance connection over 1km, please adjust the "Transmit Distance" to the
actual distance or double the actual distance.
(2) WDS Connection
Topology:
Step 1. Use the static IP in the PCs that are connected with WMC251 (Site 1) and WMC251 (Site 2). In this case,
Site 1 is “192.168.1.100”, and Site 2 is “192.168.1.200”.
Step 2. In AP-1, go to “Operation Mode” to configure it to Access Point mode.
