I am in the process of getting ready to install 1,000 Linksys WRT54GS wireless routers as clients. I was testing the Sveasoft Alchemy firmware but found I could not establish a connection to my mountian tower access point. I re-flashed to DD-WRT firmware and I can now connect. So, as a note to anybody trying to bring up a WRT54GS in client mode - The Sveasoft Alchemy firmware does not make a connection to my AP miles away - but the DD-WRT firmware works great. I tested this on a dozen Linksys WRT54GS routers at every possible power level using the RooTenna 14 & 19 db antennas. Bottom line - at this time the DD-WRT firmware works as a client if your are miles away from the AP. The Sveasoft Alchemy does not connect to my AP which is miles away.
