    Hello all, just found this site as I've been trying to setup 2 WRT54G's. The first is a v5 on stock firmware that is my main router and has been working great for years. The 2nd is a brand new v8 that has DD-WRT v24 loaded. I've followed all the steps outlined in DD-WRT's wiki about setting up a bridge, but in Site Survey, when I click join it tells me succesfully joined, but then kicks me back to the wireless setup page. I've got WPA Personal TKIP running on the main router. Matched the SSID's, network modes, keys, etc... Any thoughts of what to look at or check?

    what type of wireless device have your chosen for the second router?

    The second router is also a WRT54G v8.

    But, I figured out the problem....I had wireless MAC filtering enabled on the main router. Turned that off and all is well. Performance seems a bit sluggish, but it works.
