    I think this is simple and it works, but i want to make sure that im not causing any issues by connecting wrt routers this way

    I have 2x wrt54gs one a v2 and other v3 i believe, i recently got a wrt350n v1 yes they still have some, and i found one at circuit city with a $25 rebate as well :)

    what i plan to do, is use the built in cat 5 at home, which sadly is also shared as phone line, and the house only has it in limited places, mostly in areas that did not work out for us were the computers are.

    What i want to do, bridge 2x wrt's over lan, wrt350n will be the central one, and the other wrt54gs will connect to it, but i want both to broadcast wireless, yet i wish for a client to be able to connect either one depending on were the client is at home up stairs or down

    so, is it safe to have both in ap mode, and connect them to the lan( switch) while the 2nd wrt54gs one has wan disabled and points to the wrt350n

    right now that is working just fine... what i want to do is to be able to by pass the half bandwidth problem, and that is the only way to do it so it seams to have strong enough signal and not have it in wds or repeater, which i used and it does work.

    I have been using wds for the downstairs computer and for laptop and other devices to connect to it.

    without wds or repeater mode i should be able to have full 54mbps speed to the clients right?

    i might throw in the other wrt54gs as a repeater some place, or use it as client mode to the other pc

    oh they are all on the same sub net, but have different ip's wrt350n, wrt54gs and, also have a wireless 4 port print server (netgear) that is on .10

    using dd-wrt v24 rc1 on all 3

    i set dhcp servers to start ips from 11 and on
