Connecting to Hotel WiFi

    I've done a lot of research on the net and on this forum and I still can't find a guide on this. I am going away soon and want to use my WHR-HP-G54 (with the latest Tomato) to connect to a hotel's WiFi for a stronger signal. I am trying it at home now with a wireless router.. I am assuming it will work the same way at the hotel.

    I set the "Wireless Mode" to "Wireless Ethernet Bridge" and enter in the SSID of the router I want to connect to (leave the switch on the router to auto?).

    It seems it is connected. When I go to the "Overview" screen in the router, it says at the bottom that its connected.. it lists the SSID and the signal info.. but I don't have any connection on the laptop.

    I think my problem is the settings on the laptop's nic card. What addresses do I set on the laptop and in the router?

    DHCP for the hotel connection. For your home connection use anything that works when you connect to the main router or if you have DHCP enabled on your main home router, use DHCP.

    Edit - DHCP for the laptop. The client bridged router can have any address that is not duplicate to anything else. It's address is not important. It is only to access the radio's programming and has no effect on connectivity or data flow.
