    This is a diagram showing the basic topology of the network.

    Should be self explainitory...

    I plan on using a pair of cantennas between the two bridges.


    A. Would I be able to split the network between the wireless bridges, and have the bridge "There" connect to the router's WAN port, and have it handle DHCP over there while my WRT54G handles DHCP on this end?

    B. How would I split it?

    C. The bridges are capable of WPA. Would I be able to use this, even though it's just bridge-to-bridge?

    D. The bridge on my side ("Here") of the network will be in range of the router's signal. Will it interfere? How about if I were to change the channels on the bridges to 1, and use channel 11 for the router?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well fuck all of you.

    FreeWRT is right, you all do deserve to be on a blacklist.

    Fucking non-helping bastards

    hmmmm i had an answer for ya but if ya wanna be rude... :thumbdown:

    if you want the networks seperated, you could use a different subnet

    If you plug the bridge into the WAN port of the router it should look for the IP address that the router on the other end is broadcasting. Then you could do whatever you want behind that router, a completely seperate network

    Oh, and if the bridges are capable of WPA, it shouldnt matter what configuration its setup in, it should just work.

    Couldnt you just use the routers Wireless and then have 1 bridge on the segmented part of the network? why do you need 2 bridges unless this bridge is a ways away from the router. Might be making one more hop and slower response times for the devices on the distant network

    It's amazing how being an asshole gets a reply.

    It really all depends how strong the signal is and if it'll reach it's destination properly in order for me to know if im gonna need just 1 bridge to connect to the router There, or 2 bridges with a line-of-sight antenna....
