Hello all, I'm new to this site. I want to let you all know that I got my client bridge setup using the information given on this forum by searching various posts. It took me about 3 days but I finally got it working fairly well. I want to give thanks to all those who contributed to this forum cuz without the knowledge it would probably have taken me a lot longer. Let me start out by saying that my setup includes a WRT54Gv3.0 as the MAIN router and a WRT54GSv1.0 as the CLIENT router. I got this setup working in client-bridged mode with WPA/AES. It was my initial hope that I wouldn't have to change any settings on my MAIN router and just be able to connect the CLIENT router as a regular client. This was not possible because prior to beginning this project I had WPA2/AES running. Whenever I try to run client-bridge using WPA2 AES or TKIP the CLIENT never can really establish a solid association with MAIN. On the MAIN status->wireless page the Clients section shows the MAC of the CLIENT coming in and out whenever I hit refresh and the signal is always 0 and SNR is -100. If I change my encryption to WPA/AES then I get a solid association between MAIN and CLIENT with signal -58 and SNR 42. Any ideas on why WPA2 doesn't seem to work? Another interesting thing I noticed is that when the only device that connects to the MAIN router is the CLIENT router over wireless then throughput is pretty low somewhere around 3 Mbps but as soon as I fire up my laptop and get it to join the wireless network on MAIN then throughput across the bridge suddenly goes up to like 18 Mbps even though the laptop is just sitting there connected but not really passing any traffic. Throughput testing was being done using 2 wired desktops one each connected to a LAN port on each router. Again any ideas why this is??? Weird!!! Another problem I ran into was initially I had to set the MAIN router to mixed mode instead of G-only otherwise CLIENT wouldn't connect regardless of encryption type or even no encryption. But somehow later on this was no longer a problem and now I have both ends set to G-only. Anyhow this is the little project I undertook, again thanks all for your help. I can now return an expensive WMP54GX PCI card I had bought for my desktop for about $120 and instead use the onboard 10/100 ethernet connected to my CLIENT bridge router as well as have an addtional 4 more LAN ports. How awesome is that!!!
