I have a Wavlink WL-WN575A3 . It is cheap but has good performance 5GHz 867Mbps and 2.4GHz 300Mbps only downside it 100Mbps ethernet sockets. Thank you to the person that made the firmware btw.

What I want it to repeat/bridge the connect from 5Ghz AP (and Archer C9 running dd-wrt)
WDS I haven't got to work.
using relayd this works for ethernet and 2.4 Ghz
However 5Ghz doesn't seem to work. I feel it should as the manufacture firmware had it working. The internet suggest it should also work if i keep the channel the same. (I have tired that)
I have set up a client to the AP
and AP to rely the connection. The AP to relay (master) get labeled as disabled with no red line on it.
I set the error in the sys log

I have tried setting the beacon to 100 on both wireless setups. I have also update all packages I can.
