Here is what I am planning - i. WRT54GS1 (AP mounted outdoor with Omni, VPN server, router) -> ADSL Modem -> Internet ii. WRT54GS2 (200 meter from WRT54GS1, Client Mode mounted outdoor with panel directional antenna) -> WRT54GS1 iia. at location WRT54GS2 want to also allow wireless clients so connect ethernet from WRT54GS2 to a WAP54G I want to avoid WDS reapter mode because I may also connect more WRT54GS at longer distances and not sure if WDS is a good idea with like 4 WRT54GS all connected in reapter mode - what is the general design consideration with WDS with more than 2 repeater units? My questions are - 1. I want to use an open network but want all computers to connect to the WRT54GS1 VPN in order to access the router for internet access. So is it possible with one of the firmware to allow internet access via VPN but not for regular clients? 2. At location WRT54GS2 without WDS - to also allow wireless clients is adding another AP the only way? 3. At WRT54GS2 I was thinking to minimize wiring (except power) to put the WAP54G outdoor also near the WRT54GS2 - because WRT54GS2's antenna is directional will the WAP54G have much interferance? How far apart so they be? Or is it better to run the CAT5 indoor and power the WRT54GS2 via WAPPOE? All outdoor units will of course be weatherproof. I understand the networking on the client end. But on the AP end not sure how to prevent clients from using the internet - and only allow if connected via VPN. Thanks. B.
