    Hi guys,

    I want to build up a wireless home network with a wireless rouer and access-point. I found out that 2x WRT54g is cheaper then 1x WRT54g and 1x WAP54g so i just ordered 2 of those routers :shock:

    my question: Is it possible to flash into one router, that will work as AP the firmware from WAP54g, in order to only got those important settings? I know very well, it's a critical action, just curious if it would work, or not :)

    Thanks a lot

    As long it us not a version 5.0, since there is no third party firmware for that model. Always do firmware updates from a wired connection and after reseting the router to factory defaults.

    thanks @ howardp6

    yea i've taken good care and ordered 2 pieces of v4.0 :D

    but i'm not trying to upload a 3rd firmware into the ' becoming AP' it's a firmware from an other model. It's too risky to just try, that's why i want some opinions..

    What if i've done so and it doesn't boot up.. is there ways to rescure the deadflashed device?

    I'm not so experienced in those things... :) thanks

    noone got more hints? Can i flash WRT54g v4.0 with firmware of WAP54g without making the device down?
