2wire connecting to WRT?

    hey, so my problem is that the client I'm doing a job for has a 2wire network which connects 4 of their computers, and now she wants wireless on one of them.

    Does anyone have any experience with 2wire networks (through the phone lines)?

    What I want to know is: is there a way I can have a WRT broadcasting from a location which receives the DSL over the 2wire network? So, it's not the place with the DSL modem and the 2wire HomePortal router... instead, it's a location which has a 2wire USB adapter which gets the network through the phone lines.

    Any ideas? Is there anywhere I can find more info about 2wire networking?

    You confused me a bit... (sorry, I'm tired...) Does the 2wire Modem / Home PhoneLine Networking Router have any traditional RJ-45 LAN ports? (A model number or better yet a link to more info on the 2wire modem/router(?) you're dealing with might be helpful.)

    If you have a wired (2wire?) router with a free LAN port somewhere on the network simply run a cable from the wired router to a LAN port on the WRT. You can then configure the wireless as usual. You'll want to disable the DHCP server in the WRT as well.

    I'd suggest the 2Wire website or maybe the BroadBandReports.com 2Wire forum
