    I have a WRT54G v1.0, which I am trying to use as a client. I installed the Sveasoft Satori 4.0 on it I tried to configure it as a client, I changed the ip address to 192.168.1.1 and set in client mode. I entered the ip-address of my WRT54G v2.0 of 192.168.1.2, which I am using as a AP. I have enabled WEP, and am using the same ssid and channel. The WRT54G V2.0 is connected to a WRT54GX, which is the DHCP server on port one of the WRT54GX and port four of the WRT54G v2.0. The reason I wanted to use the WRT54G as a client is that I wanted to use WPA-PSK originaly, but I have read it Satori does not support WPA-PSK. So before I pay Sveasoft their twenty dollars I wanted to see if it will work with WEP. The WRT54GX uses WPA-PSK AES to communicate to my three PCs. What I wanted to do is to connect my WPS54UB2 to the WRT54G v1.0, since the WPS54GUB2 only support WEP and Linksys does not appear to be able to create firmware for its printservers that support WPA-PSK. Any device I connect to the WRT54G is not getting an ip address. The WRT54G v2.0 appears to connect to the WRT54G v1.0 since I can see it as a mac-adddress client. the Mac address of the WRT54G v1.0 is entered in the Mac address list of the two other routers. I disabled loop-back the WRT54G v1.0 and 801.x. I do not seem to get it to work. I tried loading the Satori software on the WRT54G v2.0 also and used the WDS setup on the Satori forum at this site, but that did not work either.
