    Hi.

    I've 2 WRT54G both running latest Tomato Firmware.

    Router.A is wired and is a wireless AP
    Router.B is working as a wireless client connecting my Xbox to the net.

    My problem is.

    I cannot access SAMBA on my Xbox.
    How should I configure my routers so that my Xbox on Router.B so that it can access NETWORK(SAMBA) or Microsoft Workgroup on Router.A?

    Use WDS bridge instead of wireless client. If Router B does not have wireless clients set it only for WDS, not AP+WDS. If you have no wireless clients at all, set both A and B to only WDS with each other.

    Thanks!
    Working great streaming videos to my xbox via samba workgroup.
    Most of the files are smooth except a .img which is 2.64gb not sure if that's why it's lagging or Xbox ain't fast enough to decode.

    Push the power level up to 125 mW on each radio to see if you can get a faster link rate and be sure to turn on frame bursting in both radios. Both options are under advanced - wireless.

    Tried that and the bandwidth monitor showed a peak of 1.5mb/s upload with about 800kb/s constant.
    I guess maybe it's my xbox lagging.
    Xbox processor ain't fast enough.
