    Hey guys, I just moved in with a guy who has a AT&Y 6800G router. Since I have a WRT54G we are using that to share our dsl between 3 laptops (all wireless) and my xBox (hardwired). We would like to get rid of the cable on the floor linking the xBox to the WRT45G but neither of us want to fork out the cash for a wireless bridge. Since he has the AT&T 6800G laying around, could we use that to bridge the xBox to the linksys router? I'm pretty good with computers, but when it comes to networking I'm a noob....

    Here's the manual for the AT&T router

    I'm open to sugestions!

    There's nothing in the manual to suggest that the AT&T router can do wireless bridging so it looks like the answer is no :(

    Damn.... that's what I was afraid of....

    I guess I don't have any other options besides buying another router with bridging capabilites or an actual bridge, do I?

    Thanks for taking the time btw TazUK!

    A WAP54G setup as a bridge with the WRT54G would probably be the best solution :)
