In a few other threads Ive gotten some very good answers. I have one more question before I place some orders. I want to run a bridge as Ill show in the picture Ill include. For this bridge I am planning on using WRT54G/GS, I havent decided which. Id prefer the GS by what Ive read. BUT can it be upgraded with the DD-WRT firmware like the plain G can? Also I will have two. One on each side with directional antennas pointing at each other. One will be my main router for the whole system. The other I just want to have act as a bridge. I will have the main router and bridge on different channels than the APs. How do I have the bridge not act as an AP for wireless users? I only want it to send data from the hardwired APs across to the main router. Past the bridge I will have APs hardwired one after another in spots where they are needed. I will have them alternating channels 1 and 11. I am thinking that WRT54GX or Belking Pre-N routers would be good for these. They could do some better penetrating than WRT54G's without having to buy any extra antennas. Do they just get assigned static IP addresses manually and then set somehow (in firmware) to act as AP's instead of routers. This way they will just take data and put it out on the wires or what? Thanks in advance for the help. The ONLY other thing I was thinking of doing was having the bridge be 802.11A equipment. This way the main wireless transmission point on the network would be interferrence free. I have a neighbor with a 19db omni antenna with a 1 watt amp on channel 6 about 250' away.
