Im about to pull all my hair out on this one. This is my set up. wrt54g v1.0 Latest linksys firmware 192.168.1.2 hardwired to a befsr41 (192.168.1.1) that's connect to the internet. wrt54g v2.2 alchemy 6.0-rc4 v126.96.36.199.8sv firmware 192.168.1.4 I cant get the second wrt54g to connect to the first one. I set it up as a client and disabled everything except NTP. Can someone help me to configure this thing so it will work as a bridge. I had to use the alchemy because the 2nd wrt is a v2.2 the ssid, channel, security type is the same on both. On the first wrt I have mac filtering enabled. that shouldn't matter right? any suggestions on how to configure this to work. what I'm trying to do is: hook a network enabled (internal print server) printer to the 2nd wrt since it will not be near any computers. Also if need be i got the other ports to hook something else up. from the second wrt i cant ping the gateway (192.168.1.1). I cant ping the 2nd wrt 192.168.1.4 from anywhere unless i plug into the 2nd wrt do i need to update the firmware on both wrt's?
