    Hi all

    How do I connect a linksys WAG354G Gateway and a WAP54G Access Point wirelessly for use on the same network, what configurations do I need to make?
    Seeing that the Access Point does not have built in HDCP, how do I relay the DHCP server on the Gateway to
    provide HDCP to the wireless client connecting to the Access Point?
    Is there any tutorials available on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some peolple have reported connecting the WAP54G to a WAG54G, but I have not seen any reports of anoyone connecting it to the WAG345G. Enter the default IP Address of in your browser. You should bd prompted for the default pass word of admin. You can try Access Point Client or Bridge Mode, thise are set under AP. You configure the WAP45G witht the same SSID, channel and encryption and save your setting. You select AP Mode and select Access Point Client and do a site survey. Select the WAG345G by it MAC Address and click the seection and the close control button. If you do not want to use Access Point Client you can copy the MAC address of the WAG345G and close with out selecting the WAG345G and paste the MAC address into the Birdge Mode and save your setting.

    In Access point Client mode no wireless device can connect to the WAP54G.

    You should change the password of the WAP54G.

    In Bridge Mode any wired computer ordevice will get its IP Address from the WAG345G.

    In repeater mode any wireless device connecting toe the WAP54G again gets it IP Address from your gateway.
