    Basically I have 2 wrt54gs v2 routers and am thinking about putting one in client mode and was wondering if they would take advantage of afterburner. Common sense says they should, but I thought I ask if anyone else has done this.

    Both using dd-wrt v23 25/12/05

    Sorry if this has been answered before, I read through several posts on client mode and didn't see it so I thought I'd ask.

    I would think they would, provided they are close enough to be able to get a clean signal off of it.

    I guess i'll have to try it. Thought I'd ask before I bought another GS, but too late for that, I found a source for WRT54GS v2's and am thinking about buying several more to sell on e-bay :):) not really but you never know the good ones are getting harder to find. I don't really need it, just monkeying around and thought it might be cool to try since I have to transfer several thousand mp3's from my desktop to my laptop. Usually I just connect my laptop via ethernet cable because wireless takes forever. If afterburner works it should cut that time down a little anyway, still faster via wire, but what the heck I'm bored and you can never have too many wireless routers.................................can you?

    I just finished trying to get this working and for some reason when the routers are bridged they slow down to 1mbps. Even with afterburner enabled on both routers. I could have something misconfigured, but as it stands right now, it's much faster for me to connect to my base router with my intel pro 2200 bg than with another WRT54GS in client bridged mode. Interesting.
