    I think I am one step away from making it work for me. I can't get through the WRT. On one side is the PC 192.168.1 the other side with internest accuss is 192.168.2.1. I tryed ping 192.168.2.1 and get timed out.
    I have Wireless mode = client-routed. In "client-bridge" WRT54 won't dhcp at all.

    Freeman 1.0.4

    make sure you have wireless mac addressess for both units ... then you want to make sure that they are in the WDS manualy entered... now disable AP Watchdog ... you will also want to put one router to 192.168.1.1 and the other one to 192.168.1.2 otherwise you wont be able to talk to it...

    darn right, you are kinda close.

    bridge != router.

    since you are in different subnets, you would need a router.

    put both in 192.168.1.0 and then it'll work.
