Configure WDS bridges to other access points
The Wireless Distribution System (WDS) allows you to bridge wireless traffic between access points.
By wirelessly connecting APs to one another in an Extended Service Set, you can bridge distant Ethernets into a single LAN with each AP serving part of an area too large for a single AP to cover. WDS can extend the reach of your network into areas where cabling might be too difficult.
Do not create loops with either WDS bridges or combinations of Wired (Ethernet) connections and WDS bridges.
Loops created by WDS bridges with the intention of establishing backup links or extended service sets (ESS) with two WDS bridges on one AP will not work; they will result in endless loop data traffic on the network because Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is not on the AP to prevent it.
