Need assistance setting up WRT54G as a Repeater

    Have a Motorola 3347 modem setup as a transparent bridge with a WRT54G attached to it via patch cable to the WAN port of the WRT54G. The PPoE settings are defined in the WRT54G. Everything works fine, however, can't seem to get a second WRT54G setup as a repeater. I've tried many tutorials on setting up a DD-WRT flashed WRT54G as a repeater with no success.

    Equipment and IP's are as follows:

    Motorola 3347 Modem set as transparent bridge: 192.168.0.1

    Linksys WRT54G flashed with DD-WRT Build 11296 (attached to modem via patch cable to the WAN port): 192.168.0.2

    Linksys WRT54G flashed with DD-WRT Build 11296 (Repeater): 192.168.69.1


    Any assistance on a step by step process on how to accomplish this would be appreciated. Heck, I'm even willing to pay for some help at this point :grin:

    Problems Setting up a DD-WRT Repeater Bridge

    Already tried these and multiple other variations. They don't work. Please do not send me links that you have not tested yourself.

    If you are going to send a link, send something that has been personally confirmed that works. Better yet, I'd be willing to pay someone for the configuration files of a working repeater.

    Tell you what. you write to the peope at the DD-WRT forum and tell them the wiki hundreds of people there have used to set their networks up for years doesn't work. be a take-charge kind of guy.

    Keep your sarcasm to yourself. If you don't have anything useful to add, then keep your comments to yourself. I'm trying to solve a problem. Your sarcasm does no good. I'm not saying that the tutorials don't work for some. They are not working for my particular scenario, thus they are worthless to me if they don't work.

    do what you are going to do
    when you find out you're not getting your way
    because you're not getting your way.

    How?

    Just so if someone else has the same issue you had, how did you solve the problem?

    What was the solution to the problem? I have a WRT54GS V5 running as a repeater and with an earlier version of DD-WRT the repeated segment of the network had to be on a different subnet just like you're describing. A few days ago I switched to an updated version of DD-WRT on the repeater router and it works perfectly. Now I can have the segment that's wired behind the bridge on the same subnet as the main portion of my network as well as the wireless repeater portion on that WRT54G. This works slick.
