    Has anyone produced a stable and stripped down ( based on OpenWRT ? ) firmware that does repeater only WRT?

    I mean a repeater node doesn't need a ton of special config screens, doesn't need to be a DHCP server, doesn't need to know how to do PPPoE, etc.... you just want it to be stable...

    I wish!

    This would make great sense. A repeater that can do WDS but not obligated to. I can't imagine why a WRT54G can't connect to a random access point and share it to others wirelessly. Sure it willl probably half the throughput, but what doe you expect? Sort of like client mode does over the ethernet port. That shouldn't be that hard.

    WRT54G AS A REPEATER

    Hi:
    I have a WRT54GV3 with Sveasoft Talisman firmware.
    Any idea how I set it up to act as a repeater from a WIFI Hot SPot
    so that my laptop can access it. Signal is just outside my door, but
    weak.

    Thanks
