I have two Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH routers. They are both running DD-WRT v24SP2-EU-US (08/19/10) std - build 14998 firmware.

I would like to set them up so that one is a wireless repeater of the other. I would like to run WPA2 Personal Mixed (TKIP+AES) encryption on them. I'd prefer them to be on the same subnet. Is this possible? How do I configure this? I have tried following the directions at the DD-WRT site, but I can't seem to make it work.

I read this, and came accross the answer on page 8:

WDS Station is the client in a WDS-AP <-> WDS station bridge. This is a special wireless networking mode that offers better flexibility and security than the classical MAC address based WDS.

Would a WDS network fit your requirements?
