    I'm new to the whole 3rd party firmware thing and I was wondering if anyone has been able to get a WRT54G to work as a bridge when having wpa set up? I stuggled through setting up one yesterday that did not use wpa and then i worked on another today and I got it to work for a couple minutes, then i moved it to where it needed to go and then it didn't work. I re flashed it with the latest version and changed all the parameters and still no luck. I was able to get it to work when I disabled wpa but i really don't want to do that.

    It is a WRT54G v4 and i unfortunatly bricked it and i need to pick up another but I wanted to make sure what i would like to do is possible before wasting another $50.

    Worked fine for me on a couple of WRT units. WDS bridge with WPA-PSK AES with 63-character key. v23beta2 from a few months ago.

    I do recall that I couldn't just make the settings and soft-boot and watch it work. I had to do setup, then power-cycle both sides manually. After a cold-start everything worked great for months now.

    Thanks for the info vincentfox. I got a new router and got it up and running. I did notice that it does have to be a fresh boot on both devices for it to work properly. Maybe after some future updates that issue will be fixed.

    okay I thought eveything was okay but now it drops the connecton and i need to restart the whole network every so often. Is there any keep alive settings or something I'm doing wrong? I am using WPA-PSK TKIP

    Thanks again,
