WPA-PSK w/ TKIP & WDS

Is it possible to have a small number of standalone (no controller) AP's run WPA-PSK with TKIP and use one AP for WDS to enable fast roaming, but without having to have any kind of local or server based authentication ? I don't want to have to define logins for each user, I just want to use a single pre-shared key and need them to be able to roam seamlessly between APs.

I understand that you want to implement layer 2 fast secure roaming without using a dot1x authentication. If this is correct, then I think you can do the configuration you have mentioned. But, for sure, fats secure roaming, th client and the Ap shuld support CCKM.

Yes it is possible, it actually works fairly well. Just make sure that your WDS AP is one that does not take a large load connected clients, otherwise the WDS service will be deminished becaues the AP will worry about the clients.

Hello,

Please could you share your generic config for this - particularly as you say it works. I've been looking for ages for example WDS configs for FAT APs.

Thanks in advance,

Julian
