    ok this is for those of you that want to bridge 2 WRT54G/GS

    1:first thing is first go here to DL the DD-WRT firmware, i used DD-WRT #22 (prefinal3) because it is the easiest one to flash: www.dd-wrt-.com

    2:and go here to DL the lastest firmware from linksys:
    WRT54GS
    www.linksys.com/download/firmware.asp?fwid=207
    WRT54G
    www.linksys.com/download/firmware.asp?fwid=201

    ok once u have those ur all set

    3: connect your routers (DO NOT USE THE PROVIDED CD!!!!....it suxs neway lol)

    4:you might have to change your IP address to 192.168.1.XXX so u can conncet to the routers but this is fine for alittle while besides you DL the firmware didnt u??

    5: log into ur router and go under the Admin tab and click firmware upgrade and flash the the lastest drivers from linksys which u should have DL...and it is the .bin file(I CANT STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS NOT TO DO ANYTHING WHILE YOUR UPGRADING, IT WILL KILL THE ROUTER IF IT IS INTERUPTED OR MESSED WITH):

    6:then power down the router and turn it back on wait for the power LED to stop blinking before moving on

    7:repeat step five but when u pick a firmware to upgrade to...chose the DD-WRT file...same as the one before make sure it is the .bin file...(I CANT STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS NOT TO DO ANYTHING WHILE YOUR UPGRADING, IT WILL KILL THE ROUTER IF IT IS INTERUPTED OR MESSED WITH)

    8:power down the router and turn it back on...wait for the power LED to stop blinking before moving on.

    9:now u should have DD-WRT on ur router, log into ur router and look in the top right hand corner to c if it worked...DUH it worked there u just flashed the router...and repeat steps 5-8 on the second router and ur ready to config the routers to talk to each other

    10:eek:k now follow the link to a example of how to config the two routers everything should be the same...BUT THE MACs on the WDS!!! the address that i highlighted...write that down...that MAC goes on the OTHER router,
    EX: if ur MAC is :00 12 34 56 78 9A: then that goes on the OTHER router and do the same for the other router.up.http://photobucket.com/albums/v257/aasniper07/?action=view&current=CONFIG.jpg

    now you can go in and change the IP addresses of the routers to what ever u want and when ur done with that and save the changes u go and change ur IP address to AUTO and it will get the address from the router so its all good and ready to go!!!

    well now your two router are now talking to one another if u have NE questinos please IM me or email me i will greatly help you, i hope this helps someone bc i took some time for me to figure this out and that is how i have mine set
