    I know I read this somewhere but I keep finding what to do when you only have two WAP's.

    I want to confirm the following setup. It is to note that it currently works fine, but it seems to me this wasn't the best/proper way.

    I have DSL going into my WRT54G, and a Cat-5 cable running from Port 1 to a WAP54G across the house.

    I made the SSID, Encryption and Channel identical on both wifi boxes. However, I read that you should use different Channels for each.

    Is this true? I have not had any interference so far but then again, I have only been using this setup for a day. I can roam around my home with my laptop which was the whole point. I will monitor my setup but just wondering if anyone else did the same setup and use the same or different Channels, SSIDs, etc..

    Thanks - Jim F.
