WRT54G with BT Hub 3?

    I really need a answer for this. I have a BT Hub 3, which is on BT infiity and is WPA2/WPA. I want to purchase a WRT54G to make a SECOND wifi access point. So I would still be able to use the BT Hub3 Access Point of BTHUB3-**** and I want to buy a Linksys WRT54G and have a WEP Password and SSID is PokemonAcer109 etc... Is it possible?

    To sum up:
    • BT Hub3 NEEDS to still give off WPA/WPA2 Access Point
    • Need WRT54G To ALSO give off a Access point, connecting to the internet from the Hub3
    • WRT54G Will give off WEP Connection (For my Pokemon Games)
    • I will be able to use BOTH for the internet
    Point out:
    I DON'T currently own a Linksys WRT54G, I need to know if I should buy one.
    I will connect the router with the GiGE port (Super infinity port)

    You can use a WRT54G. Connect the cable to a LAN port on the 54G, and disable DHCP. Set up the wireless the way you wish.

    Or, if you want to make it a bit simpler, you can pick up a standalone WAP, like a WAP54G, which only has one ethernet port on the back, does no routing/DHCP, and has the same wireless capabilities as the WRT54G.
