hello all, this is my first post so go easy on me please ...... I would like to run my WRT54G (v3.1) with dd-wrt firmware as a wireless AP as a bridge to my LAN segment. That is, I want the wireless clients to be given their IP's from my LAN DHCP server, which is *not* the wrt box. I currently have this setup via OpenVPN from a dedicated leg off my firewall and it works well but its just a little too involved expecially from a client point of view. To that end I have decided to try and implement WPA2 to make things more transparent and easier to configure. What I would like to know is can I setup WPA2 encryption on the wrt and *only* give out IP addresses to clients that successfully authenticate ? For all I know this may be the way that this stuff works but I haven't tried it yet. I basically only want the network to be open to authenticated clients. Can this be done with WPA2 ? Any advice/experience would be appreciated. Cheers.
