Bridged WLAN Linksys devices

    Hi all,

    I have a Linksys WRT54G v2 managing my internet connection and providing
    access for my notebook from within my flat. Now I have some more devices
    that need internet access, but those are not capable of WLAN. So I
    decided to buy a Linksys WRT54GL.

    My question is, if I could setup both devices as follows:

    WRT54GL -> Connected to the internet, providing WLAN access for my
    notebook and Internet for my PC in the upper flat

    WRT54G v2 -> Connected (bridged) via WLAN with the WRT54GL device in
    order to gain the devices connected to it internet access.

    If this is not possible, maybe it is possible with an alternate firmware (e.g. HyperWRT).

    Thanks for your reply in advance,

    schoeppchen

    It's possible with DD-WRT and probably the latest Thibor.

    That's totaly cool. How is this feature called? I'd like to install Thibor 15c on my WRT54G v2, or would you recommend DD-WRT?

    that totally depends on what you want. my firmware uses the original interface and has some extra features, and dd-wrt has tonnes of extras and a new interface. the feature you are referring to is WDS(Wireless Distribution System) or WET(Wireless Ethernet Transport)

    Hi Thibor,

    I'd like to use your firmware, is 15c for WRT45Gv2 capable of running in this mode?

    Thanks,
