IP Address
Configure the IP Address for WDS network.

NOTE: It has been recommended that the IP Address is not on your local network.</p>

Subnet Mask
The subnet for the WDS network. Values other than 255.255.255.252, have issues with WDS setup.


NOTE: Do not use the same subnet mask as your local network if you are putting your WDS IP addresses in a subset of the subnet of your local network (i.e. If your LAN is network 10.0.0.x/mask 255.255.255.0 don't use 10.0.0.15, 10.0.0.16, and mask 255.255.255.0 for WDS. 10.0.0.15, 10.0.0.16 with mask 255.255.255.252 appeared to work in preliminary testing. If you follow the recommendation not to put your WDS and local network within the same subnet, then this note shouldn't even apply to you.) Example:

Default_Gateway
The IP Address of the gateway between the local network (LAN) and the other networks (WAN).

NOTE: This is the default route when packets that are not destined for the local network will be sent down for further processing and delivery. It may be left as 0.0.0.0 ('blank) for basic WDS setups.
