Hi everybody, I wanted to thank everyone for contributing to the dd-wrt project in any way. Reading through the forums has helped me tremendously in the past months.
I successfully managed to get two WR1043ND V2 routers in Client mode connected to eduroam public wifi with the 802.1x protocol. Each of them has a virtual interface set up broadcasting my own WPA2 secured wifi. The issue is that I can only connect my devices to one of the routers at a time (the one my computer sees the first) and I can only login to one of the router’s interface
Both routers are connected to eduroam, which is what I want, but the routers are unaware of each other and I am not getting any benefits in terms of bandwidth (the connection to eduroam isn’t very strong, that’s why I’m using two routers)
What is the appropriate setup in this instance? WDS? WDS Station? Using OLSR Router?
Please note that my understanding of networking is limited but I love to learn!
Please point me to the right wiki article.
TPLINK WR1043ND V2
Firmware Version: DD-WRT v3.0-r28882 std (01/19/16)
Kernel Version: Linux 3.18.25 #8017 Tue Jan 19 03:33:37 CET 2016 mips
Qualcomm Atheros QCA9558 ver 1 rev 1.0 (0x1130)
Dual WAN setup? Sounds interesting!
The thing is that the connection is fine for youtube and stuff, but not stable enough for work in a remote workstation, I have to do.
Having two routers somewhat remedied this issue by when the router I’m currently connected loses signal, my computer connects to the other router. The signal of the host network is not strong.
connecting wirelessly WDS is the best mode if its supported, as client mode is working in a duplex mode...connection speed is impaired... _________________ Atheros

Thank you for the replies!
I tried setting up a WDS but I believe that is indeed not possible because I cannot configure the host network to accept my routers as WDS Stations. I can set up the virtual wireless interfaces to be in WDS AP mode and the internet still works but I don’t know how to link the routers together in this mode or if there is any benefit to doing so.
