    Hi all ,

    Nice to join the Linksys group and I have a problem..:tongue:

    Ok here is the problem :

    I am connected to the net using a linksys WRT54G Firmware Version: v1.00.1 and that is the main router.
    Now I want to connect another router which is the ADSL voyager 2091 which I want to use as a wireless repeater ( voyager has the firmware unlocked so it can be used in any network ).Of course it has the WDS fuction on the voyager but how do I register it with the WRT54G?

    Point being I just want to use voyager as an extension of my WRT54G.
    I have just disabled the security for both the routers just to life easier for me to get them to connect.
    But I do not know what to do after that.
    can anybody help ?

    Thanks for the sig and the net connection is cable(virgin's).There is no where in the WRT where it says that there is a wireless function so if its there in v1.00.1 please guide me to it.

    You may have a WRT54G with f/w V1.00.1 but what version WRT54G do u have?

    look on the label that is on the bottom of the router.
