Back to the Future: New Wi-Fi Bridges Use 1999 Standard [Aug. 28, 2003]
: Technical description of WDS bridging that is simple and effective. Summary
from the author: "Apple and Buffalo, to name two, allow their access points to work as APs and bridges simultaneously, which can let you create a cloud of access instead of a little pool. It also reduces costs. In a shocking discovery, which I write about in this article, you can use Buffalo and Apple equipment together in WDS mode. Buffalo's roughly $100 access point (WLA-G54) pairs with Apple's $200-$250 AirPort Extreme Base Station, which has all the gateway features you need." 10:48:47 PM
