Need help in connecting a USR 5461 MaxG router with a WRT54G

    I have a USR 5461 two floors down and am trying to connect a WRT54G as a repeater to provide better coverage on the third floor. I have the stock firmware running on the USR and have tried experimenting with HyperWRT, OpenWRT, DDWRT, etc on the WRT54G with no success. What am I doing wrong?

    You may not be doing anything wrong. WDS, which is not standardized by the IEEE is implemented differently between manufacturers, so repeaters do not usually work between different manufacturers. If the manufacturers use the same chipsets they may work.
