    I have two WRT54Gv2 both using Alchemy6rc1. My friend accross the street is letting me use his wireless (I have full access). I am trying to receave the signal and redistribute it in my place. In my place, I set the first WRT up in client mode, and it works. I connected the first WRT's LAN1 port to the second WRT's INTERNET port with a Cat6 cable. The second WRT will not let my accress the Internet.

    :?: What settings should I have on the second WRT? :?:

    Unless you have a reason for doing other wise you want to plug the network cable into a LAN port on the 2nd WRT instead of the WAN (Internet) port.

    Also you'll want to make sure the 2nd WRT is using a different channel from the Client mode WRT to cut down on interference.
