@lidd50

No. stations can only connect to AP, not to each other.
airmax radios don't support any mesh/repeater-mode... only PtP or PtMP.

A. So switch your STA #1 into AP mode and your previous AP into station mode. ( Throughput from STA #2 to STA #1 would be reduced by passing the AP between)
or
B. add a 2nd AP for STA #2 colacated with STA #1
