    Im trying to get a WLAN going with my neighbor. We both have WRT54g (i have v2.0 GS he has v1.1g), we both have our own ISP and want to share files either via windows share or samba and we would like to use the Xbox System Link feature. We have had it hard wired for a bit - using seperate DNSs as to use our own ISP.

    We are not looking at sharing our internet connections whatsoever.

    How do we do this wirelessly?

    Do we need seperate SSIDs? Is WDS the easiest way? Ad-Hoc maybe?

    Which firmware would you suggest?

    He is running dd-WRT 3.2pre and I am running Sveasoft Alchemy-pre5.4a v2.04.4.8sv.

    DHCP doesn't really matter - we are both using static IPs.

    buy a 50 dollar bridge is the easiest way.
    try using wds. but i am not sure if both wans work, try it anyway..

    if you have a cheap router without ireless around use that for your wan and the wrt for lan.

    i have a hawking ap that i use for that exact situation. but i dont like having 2 ap's on 2 different channels ( or same channes) in the same room.

    get firmware like dd-wrt of satori it will make it easier.
