wrt54g as bridge in vpn-environment

    Hi there,

    I'd like to connect several not-wireless-capable pcs to the wlan of my university.
    The basic setup for a wireless-equiped pc would be:

    DHCP-Server
    |
    ------- WLAN-AP ::::::::::: My PC
    |
    VPN-Server

    The Pc would connect to the WLAN, get an IP from the DHCP-Server, but at this point is only able to connect to the vpn-server. all other ips are blocked. I then start the vpn-connection to enable full internet access.

    What I want now is to put the WRT54G in the place of "My PC", so that normal PCs connected per wire to the WRT54G can get an IP from the DHCP-Server from my university, and connect to the VPN-server.

    Is this at all possible? I got the WRT54G to connect to the WLAN with the hyperwrt-firmware, and played around with udhcpc, but I think it would be more transparent if the PCs wouldn't even see the WRT54G.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    hennker

    the wireless and wired are bridged by default, I don't know if client mode changes this, try turning off the DHCP server on the router and see if that helps...
