    I was wondering if some sort of repeater mode was possible with a WRT54G? Or are they only capable of AP or Client mode? Thanks.

    I'm looking into purchasing a second WRT54G and was wondering about this being used as a repeater? Has anyone had success with doing this? I see several different spots with information but nobody has said they actually have it working?

    Randy,
    No problems it is operational for many, many people, including myself, based on WDS (Wireless Distribution System).
    Of course some people have trouble setting it up as can be witnessed by the number of WDS topics in the forum, but it also means that there is lots of expertise and support in the forums.

    You'll need Seavsoft Satori (or later) firmware and you can have a look at the following FAQ:

    Cheers.
