    I want to use a WRT54G router as an access point/bridge. The configuration information on the internet sites does not solve my problem. Would someone have access to this information. Thanks Happy Holidays

    sorry to jack your thread but i just wanted to add to it.

    Im in the same boat as you I want to setup my wrt54g running dd-wrt v23b2 as a bridge. What i was planning on doing was using either my netgear WGR614 or my Dlink DI-524 as my dhcp server, probably the netgear because it has more options.

    So would i just setup mbe like this

    Netgear IP:
    WRT54g IP:

    of course the starting ip's would be in different ranges

    Next i would disable dhcp on the wrt54g and enable client bridge mode after that shoudnt i be able to plug anything into the linksys and get an internet connection?

    searchman: I just configured my 2 routers (wrt54gs v2.1 - host and wrt54g v4 as birdge/repeater). You have to use dd-wrt v23. I use dd-wrt v23 beta 2 mini for the wrt54g v4 and dd-wrt v23 standard for my wrt54gs v3. It works great.

    To configure you can follow the setup configuration at:

    Since I just got it working, I haven't tried using WPA, yet. However, using WEP it works great....
