    I am in dire need of assistance and need to have an answer within a couple days.

    This could post in two possible forums but this seemed most appropriate to me.

    I have three wrtg4g units running dd-wrt ver22r2 which do what I need.
    Units are point A, B, and C. Each acts as an AP, wired net, and uses WDS to be point to point and B is point to multipoint to both A and C.

    I need backup routers for these and finding units has not worked out well.

    I have local access to Linksys WRT54G 6.0 # CDFDxxx
    Also to wrt54gs (ver 6?) ser # cgn9xxx but these would require the ddwrt MICRO firmware.

    I have not found WRT54GL units locally but I can get them online, , , I think.

    Since I mainly use the (wep, wds P to P and P to Multi P, antenna selection, output power control, mac filtering, and the web gui) I do not need the cron, sshd, and the other apps with the dd-wrt basic install. I also do not use the WAN internet port on any of these.

    I post what I think are my options with questions below. I find it difficult to know how to word the right question so please bare with me.

    Option 1
    ###
    WRT54G ver6 ser # cgn9xxx

    If I add the dd-wrt MICRO firmware on a WRT54G ver 6 unit to my network using WRT54G units with the dd-wrt ver22r2 firmware will they be compatable with each other and WDS?

    I have not found any info on just what the MICRO version has enabled compared to the basic or standard versions.

    Does the dd-wrt MICRO support wep, wds P to P and P to Multi P, antenna selection, output power control, mac filtering, and the web gui?

    Option 2
    ###
    WRT54GL

    If I add the WRT54GL with dd-wrt ver 23sp2 firmware to my network using WRT54G units with the dd-wrt ver22r2 firmware will they be compatable with each other and WDS?

    WRT54GL ver 1.1 is the latest I have seen mentioned in the forum but linksys may be shipping newer versions. What is the latest version or ser # that has been tested.

    I have been searching multiple forums for weeks but have not found the key information that will help me make the correct choice. I find my mind is just going in circles and I cannot seem to filter all the data like I used to. I am hoping someone with experience can help me sort my options and point me in the best direction.


    Thanks for any help in advance.
