i have had my wrt54g for around 6 months now. basically, i need to bridge 2 home lans in different rooms, without running a 100FT cat6 to do it. so i bought a second wrt54g, but after a bit of reading about the 3rd party firmware wars, decided i would just get an AP and play it safe. so i bought a WAP54G. so now it seems that the WAP54G cannot bridge to the WRT54G, it can only act as a repeater. from what i can tell, linksys would have me buy a WRT54G to handle routing and internet connections, and be the sole AP in the network, because the WAP54G can only bridge to another WAP54G, and when it does, its only purpose will be as a bridge and nothing else. so can someone please make some recommendations about my solution? can i bridge 2 switches hosting seperate networks with 1 WRT54G and 1 WAP54G?and if i can, will i be able to connect to either AP by laptop/wifi cards? i would have preferred using the stock linksys firmware, but i have tried HyperWRT on the WRT54G, and it is currently running Alchemy Rc5. the WAP54G is running linksys 2.08. i have not tried hyperWAP or any 3rd party FW on the WAP, as i am thinking the problem is with the WRT54G.
