    I doubt ad-hoc mode is going to do what you want... Ad-hoc mode in DD-WRT is very similar to Client mode except it connects to an Ad-hoc wireless network instead of another AP. What this means is that you can't connect your DSL/cable modem etc to the WRT's WAN port in Ad-hoc mode...

    A little more info about exactly what kind of a network you are tying to setup would be helpful in determining if Ad-hoc mode would be appropriate for your needs.

    you could try this:
    WDS-AP. In this mode the Router will act as a Normal Access Point but will also allow other WDS enabled devices to connect to extend the range of the wireless network.
