    This is my ideal setup:
    Router 1:
    Connect to internet (BEFW11S4)
    Maintain the Address Scheme with DHCP

    Router 2: (WRT54 G)
    Connect to router 1 for internet access
    Have a different Addressing Scheme (example: with DHCP active.

    Is this possible?

    I have a new Linksys WRT54 G and an older Linksys BEFW11S4.

    What you trying to do?

    The idea is possible, if you have two internet connections and two LANs.
    Seperate the Wi-Fi channels and filtering so they can only connect to one router.

    This is possible via the WDS system. I've only seen it on 3rd party firmware such as Alchemy pre7a and such. i haven't seen it on original linksys firmware. Your system is possible besides one catch. You MUST use the same addressing scheme. If one AP is 192.168.1.X you must use 192.168.1.X on the other AP as well.
