    How do I turn the Befws4 router into client, so it recieves an IP from the WRT54gs wirelessly

    Unfortunately you can't. The BEFW11S4 doesn't have client functionality. The only way to do this would be to add a wireless bridge and connect that to your BEFW11S4 and have that bridge the wireless connection for you.

    Hi...I have a similar issue however would something like this work ??

    ......................................802.11b link................................
    ISP------[BEFW11S4]~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~[WRT54G]
    ............................................................................(client mode)

    I am trying to connect my Replay TV to my 802.11b network and trying to avoid buying any more 802.11b devices.

    Sumeet,

    Yup, this would work just fine. Client mode is exactly what you'd need to setup on the WRT54G.

    For John, I believe Griff99 is correct that the BEFW11S4 doesn't have a client mode, you would have to do something similar to Sumeets setup or replace the BEF with a newer 54G product. I've got several posts on how to bridge using different products.
