    I would like to use WAP54G wireless AP like repeater for WRT54GS. Should it work in this mode with WRT54GS? In WAP54G manual there is said, that WAP54G in repeater mode works only with WAP54G and WRT54G?
    If WAP54G works with WRT54GS in repeater mode, can Linksys guaranty this?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    The WAP54G is supposed to work with the WRT54GS, if the WRT56GS has at least version 2.07.1. The following was copied from the Linksys firmware download page:

    The table below is a list of the minimum firmware requirements you must meet.
    Model Number Compatabile Firmware Version
    WRT54G 2.02.2
    WAP54G 2.07
    WRT54GS 2.07.1

    Of course you do not get speedbooster with the WAP54G and you lose half your band width, since the WAP54G only has one radio and must receive and then re-transmit the signal.
