    This is driving me crazy. I am trying to set up a second wrtg54 flashed with thibor 15c as an acess point, but after I change the ip adresss to, I have to log back in, this part goes ok, after I close the web browser and try it, it still does not work, so I try to lod back into the settings page of the second WRT54G, and I am not able to connect, I get the not reachable error. The only way for me to get back in to it is to do a hard reboot, and log back in as Any help would be great

    Well After pulling my hair out, I tried a few different things. I tried following Justins setup guide but could not get success , so I started modifing seetings and I was able to make it work great. I cannot say actually what mode I am using but here are my settings. Please tell me what you think:
    Both #1 and #2 have Thibor 15c, and signal strength set to 83%
    #1 WRT54G
    Name AP1
    Automatic DCHP Enadbled with server enabled as well
    Ip address
    Start Ip address 192.168.100 with 50 clients
    Gateway Mode
    security Disabled
    Set to connect with WDS device (ip address of #2wrt54g, make sure it is the wireless IP, these routers have 3 address's. A local address, a LAN address(wired) and a Wireless address.)

    #2 WRT54G
    Name AP2
    Automatic DHCP with the server disabled
    Loacal Ip address
    Set to router Mode
    security off
    Set to connect with WDS device(address of #1 WRT54G, wireless IP Again)

    I am pretty sure all other stuff is set to defaults, No Mac address filters or anyother type of security.

    After I could ping each router from both computers, I set security to wep with a network key on both routers and everything still worked great. I then took the router accross the street and set it up in my neighbors window where we could get a slight signal before with his laptop. Plugged it in and whole house saw a signal to AP2.
    Set up his laptop and his desktop wireless with the network key nad he was in, High speed internet!!!!!!! Now this AP will work wire and wireless. Sucess after alot of reading and a little help.
