WRT54G -- bridging, fans, downgrading

    I'm getting ready to buy a WRT54G to use as a cheap bridge. I'd like to connect a few wired ethernet clients in the basement to my primary wireless router (D-Link DI-524) on the main floor.

    Questions ...

    - From what I've read satori will work for one client, alchemy for multiple clients. Is this correct?

    - Are there any models I should avoid for compatibility reasons?

    - Is it possible to downgrade to the original Linksys firmware?

    - I've read about people installing fans. For basic bridging is this necessary?

    i believe satori will support multiple clients but im not sure

    you could add a fan but unless your planning on running the unit on a higher power level than stock it really isnt nessicairy

    i have installed a fan into my router because i needed to add a little umph
    to the range...
    but it isnt really nessicairy

    yes you can change back if you dont like it there is also a web based configuration (as well as shell prompt) most only have a shell to deal with
