    Well i have the following major problem.

    I have a internet router (cisco SOHO) and this one is connected by cable with my WRT54G router. When i wireless attached to the 54g i have internet... so that's working fine.

    But the internet must be sent to another 54G router on a different place. So it must be sent wireless. How can i fix this problem? Someone has told me that i must use a bridge functionality. Where can i find that?

    Is there a method to connect both routers with a wire? I have one router in the garage, and one in my room(that I want for my wireless access). I can set it up using the method listed via the link, but I rather have the routers connected via wire. The router in my room has the sveasoft firmware. Also, I would like the main router(garage) to assign an IP address to everything connected, at this point, the router in my room is assigning ip addresses. I also have a microsoft wireless G router that is set up as an "access point" and works the way I'd like my linksys router to work. Is the only option to get a WAP54G?

    You can connect routers via wire. If possible, that is better as you could be running as fast as 100mb vs. 54 if the link is good.

    Any router that you hook up to your main, dhcp serving router, make sure you turn of dhcp. Let the main one dish out the addresses.

    I had a dsl modem--->54g--> befsr--->desktop setup for awhile.

    I used the following link http://www.linksys.com/support/top10faqs/wrt54g/Connecting two WRT54G routers together.asp
    to set up my two WRT54G routers together. When I get to this portion:
    "12. Plug the power cord first the “first†router, and then the “second†router.

    13. At this point, the two routers are now connected and on the same network. Ports 1, 2, and 3 on the “second†router along with the remaining open ports on the “first†router are now available for other devices to plug into. You also have another wireless access point on the “second†router. Be sure to change the wireless SSID and channel on the “second†router so that they do not conflict with the “first†router."

    My connection to the second router fails. I get the whole "you have limited or no connectivity blah blah blah.." So at this point I can't access the second router. Any suggestions? I've followed the directions exactly but still can't get this to work. I can set it up using the wireless method but I rather have them connected via wire.
