    Hey,

    I used to have 2 DAP-2553 that are configured WDS to AP. They load balance themselves great, no problem there.

    When I try to put a third one in the picture, my entire network (wireless and wired) starts going slower, and slower. At one point, I need to turn off the 3rd AP.

    The first one is configured to load balance with the 2nd one. I tried to have the 3rd one to load balance with either the 1st one, or second one, with no success.

    What I am doing wrong? My experience is slowness in the network means I am looping those wireless APs, but can't figure out how...

    Scenario 1

    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 2 = Fine.


    Scenario 2

    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 2 <-----> AP 3 = Network Loops in slow motion


    Scenario 3

    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 2
    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 3

    = Network Loops in slow motion

    Scenario 4

    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 2
    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 1 <-----> AP 3
    Firewall <-----> Switch <-----> AP 2 <-----> AP 3

    = Network Loops in slow motion


    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
