    Here I go, I have two WRT54G ver 4 with the new Hyperwrt 2.1b1 tofu 11, I need to have this setup cable modem wired to WRT54G then wireless to the other WRT54G then second WRT54G wirelessly connect to laptop. I need one WRT54G to send internet connection to the second so that I can connect wirelessly to the internet by laptop.

    please help.

    So what you want is something like this:

    [Modem]
    wan
    |
    wan
    [WRT54G_1] - wireless - [WRT54G_2] - wireless - [Laptop]

    IP's:
    192.168.1.1 _ _ _ _ _ _ _192.168.1.2


    Do you want WRT54G_2 to act as an extender because your Laptop is outside the range of the broadband router WRT54G_1 ?

    I used HyperWRT tofu 10.

    1. Configure WRT54G_1 as you normally would, and then:
    2. Set Wireless mode to WDS-AP
    3. Enter the wireless MAC address of WRT54G_2 under remote bridge. Look under Status -> Wireless of the OTHER router.

    4. In WRT54G_2 you would disable internet connection and DHCP and set the LAN gateway for 192.168.1.1
    5. Configure WRT54G_2 with same wireless settings as WRT54G_1 except that you would enter the wireless MAC address of WRT54G_1 under remote bridge

    HTH
