Setting up Roaming/Repeater with WRT54G and BEFW11S4

    Hey everyone,

    I'm wondering if it's possible to set up my home network as follows:

    DSL Modem-----(CAT5e)-----WRT54G----*

    *(CAT5e)-----BEFW11S4-----(CAT5e)-----Computer
    *(CAT5e)-----Computer

    (Hopefully everyone can understand that...)

    Let's try to explain that in words: DSL modem connected to WRT54G. WRT54G connected to a computer and the BEFW11S4. BEFW11S4 connected to another computer. And then finally have both routers running as wireless APs so that I can roam wirelessly around the house.

    I found this guide for Guide to setting up WDS on the WRT54G/WRT54GS, and I'm wondering if I would basically follow that setup for my network.

    Would I also have to set the wireless on the WRT54G to 802.11b mode only as well to get it to work with the BEFW11S4?

    Any help would be appreciated.
