Here is my desired setup, as a graphic, which seems most appropriate. As shown, the net connects through the cable modem, to a linksys cable router, which is setup to do NAT and serve DHCP requests (in the range 192.168.1.100 --> onwards). All Cat5 links are purple. The linksys cable router is connected to a hub which is connected to a few hosts (about 2-4) and one Apple airport base station (old grey kind). Currently, the Apple airport basestation is set such that all wireless clients are bridged to the ethernet network, so that the linksys cable router feeds them IP addresses via DHCP. Now, here comes the part I cant figure out. I have a long range wifi link between the WRT54G and the Airport base station (or at least the capability for this link) using self-made cantennas that work quite well. This is indicated above by the dashed orange line. On the other side of that link, on the far side (WRT54G side) I wish to connect hosts to the same all inclusive network. In particular, the host (shown as a laptop) should be able to grab a DHCP address from the linksys cable router (as indicated w/ a brown line and appropriate IP address). How do I setup the WRT54G to do this ? I'm using the sveasoft Alchemy 5.4 firmware at the moment. I've been messing around with client feature, but i cant quite seem to get it to work properly. When i've set it in client mode, with the above shown IP address, and if I set the laptop manually with the right information then it will work, but it cant see anything ELSE on the local network or grab an IP from DHCP. In short, I want a pure bridge.... is this possible ? Am I setting it up wrong ? Thanks in advance, Cyberfunk.
