    Please forgive this noobie question.... but...

    I have a WRT300N for my main router, and wanted to "repeat" the signal to the garage for an ip camera that I have setup anyway....

    after buying a WRT54G and finding out I couldnt use it as a repeater unless I used a 3rd party firmware, I just returned it as I read a WAP54G will work right out of the box as thats what it is designed for .... anyway....

    Now that I get the damn thing and cant get it to work, I read the instructions, it saiz it will ONLY work with the WRT54G and also with another WAP54G??? Are you seriuos? I just want to repeat the G signal not the N.

    Anyway i got this damn thing of ebay and cant return it, is there a 3rd party firmware that will allow this thing to connect to the WRT300N? Or should I buy another one and hard wire it to the main router and then connect the 2 WAP54G's together? Or scrap the WRT300N and just use a WRT54G?

    I cant beleive Linksys dosent make there products more compatible with there own products??

    Any help greatly appreciated, I dont mind reading so if someone can point me to a good link that would help alot!

    Have a great day!

    I have a WAP54G as well and it should work as an AP Client (that's what you want) with any Linksys Hardware, but not with 3rd Party Hardware.
