(Yes, yes I realized the fact that it's in another building doesn't matter that much, Because in all reality the building is one foot away, Its just about a foot of concrete in between.) Anyway guys, I'm trying to do something Nifty, I've already posted about it on the HardForum, But while I was in class today I did some reading and it looks like someone here in this very forum, Today; is having the same, or a very simular issue to me. I will repost what I made on HardForum to save time, But for technical reference, Everything I've done and tried is relative to the information in this other afformentioned thread: http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=63034 Here is a copy paste of HardForum's post: ___________________________________ Greetings fellow friends, I recently moved next door to my new IT job. Quite literally, its an old neighborhood with many commercial complexes, and some old houses from the 40's. My company bought the property on both sides of our building incase the future requires expansion and for now I am living there! Woot, no more drives to work! Anyway, Our CTO said it's fine if I use the 30MB Fiber Optic broadband for my own personal use at home, However he is not willing to allow me to run CAT Cable to my house. I installed a Wireless Router (WRT54G) using Tomato 1.25 underneath a desk nearest to my Basement Bedroom Window, and am able to receive excellent wireless connectivity VIA Notebooks and other devices throughout my house. However, My desktop computer does not have a wireless card and I do not plan to put on in due to resource conflicts, and I do not like what Wireless Interferance does ocasionally. I thought it would be best to goto the store last night to buy another router, this one was a WRT54GL and I flashed it to Tomato 1.25 immediatly. I attempted to use Access Point + WDS mode as highlighted in this readme http://www.polarcloud.com/tomatofaq (How to use WDS?) I run a private network using PFSENSE on 10.8.20.* ranges, and there is DHCP. When I connect wirelessly to the router under the desk I receive a 10.8 Address via DHCP which is carried from our primary network/routers to the Wireless Router, And then to me. PS: I have plugged the LAN of my Office LAN to Port 1 on Router #1, Should I be using the WAN Port instead? What should the WAN Settings be? How do I simply carry my Office LAN into my home, we have a very nice office network here and I would love to sit on it like a big cave man. However, what I want to do is be able to physically place the second wireless router in my window and optimize antenna Placement to allow myself to physically plug in CAT5 cable and receive the internet/network signals across the 2 wireless points, and into my house. When I do broadband speed test through wireless I get 20+MB so I am not concerned so much about loss, I just need to get this signal in my house. Using the instructions i found in the FAQ and my own fooling around I was not able to get it to work. I would get DHCP or even be able to assign my own addresses to my PC, But no LAN or WAN connectivity, In fact, I couldnt even ping the first router while connected to the second router in my room. However: The routers show up in eachothers Device List and WDS does work because my notebook connectivity went from Midrange to Full Bars (Excellent) and this was in the basement of my home! I am not sure what I am doing wrong, But I hope someone here will be of help to me. I would really appreciate this because understanding where I went wrong in this matter will further my network knowledge and skillset by a good margin! (I was thinking last night it could be something related to Configuration, I have WAN established as DHCP but the first router never negitiates an address, but the wireless clients connected to it gain pass-through lan addresses assigned by our primary network host.) Is it even possible to do what I want to do here with these devices? Is there a better way of going about what I want? Perhaps buying a N+ Router and a high end card and just dealing with adding new hardware to my PC would be better than running across 2 routers? What am I missing here? NAT Configurations, hostname configuration? Etc? Other things I have thought of: Do I need to add a route to my computer, or PFsense in order to accomidate this? Is this a physical limitation I have reached?
