anyone know how to WET (bridge) to a verizon wireless router with one WRT54GS (v3) thanks
Same wireless channel
Same wireless security
*WPA+AES will work fine.
*WPA+TKIP will work fine.
Same wireless password
Same wireless SSID
Same wireless mode (G-only or mixed)
IP address is 1 number higher (or at least in the same range--could even be .254)
WAN port disable
*WET bridge recieves a wireless signal and serves only wired clients.
*IP address is needed in range only during setup. For a truly transparent bridge, move the WET IP address to a different range after setup. For example: 192.168.2.1. Fortunately, this step is as unneccessary as it is inconvenient.
*You may also use a WET bridge as a relay station by plugging in another AP/wireless router in back-to-back. Of course the second unit must be on a far seperate channel, while the SSID may be the same. Despite the channel being different, at least 7 feet of physical seperation is recommended. This application is similar to WDS, except that wireless relay is twice as fast as WDS.
*Since you are using the high speed version of HyperWRT, you may engage speedbooster for all modes by putting the command
nvram set afterburner_override=1
into the startup script located on the administration page. For more information, see the forums of hyperwrt.org.
and how STA ?
Well, I can't exactly remember, but either the WAN port is shut off or it is set on manual with some address like:
192.168.1.1 Gateway and DNS
I have never gotten client mode (STA) to work on Tofu's releases, but it must have been something I did. I knew it worked on Thibor's so I just switched my V3 "G" over to a "GS" (more information at the forums of hyperwrt.org) and it only took 3 minutes to convince it to work in STA (client mode). Now people tell me that Tofu11 is a bit faster on the Internet, so I'm tempted to check that out again.
Hey, I hope that helps.
Viper, I'll bet that your WRT54GL will love running speedbooster.
