    I have three routers:

    (1) Hardwired: D-Link DGL-4100 Gigabit Router – Main Router Connected to the Modem. This Router is running Stock Firmware (Ver. 1.8)

    (2) Wireless Linksys WRTU54G-TM (T-Mobile VOIP) Connected to a LAN Port on the D-Link Router. This Router is running Stock Firmware (Ver. 1.00.15)


    (3) Wireless: Linksys WRT54G-TM
    This Router is running Tomato Firmware (Ver. 1.23; “WRT54G_WRT54GL.binâ€). I have the ability to connect this router directly to the D-Link Gigabit Router if I need to, but would prefer not to do so, since this limit my placement option for this wireless router.

    I would like to have the WRT54G-TM router to be able to connect to the WRTU54G-TM (VOIP) wirelessly and serve as a repeater so that I can have very good wireless signal throughout the house and be able to connect my Laptop and Wi-Fi cell phone (UMA) to the internet.

    (a) What is the best way to do this, given the tomato firmware on the WRT54G-TM Router? Or should I use the DD-WRT firmware?
    (b) Should it be structured as a Wireless Point + WDS? Wireless Ethernet Bridge? WDS, etc.

    Can someone point me to a link which will walk be through the steps to set this up.

    Thx.
