    My uncle currently has this network setup: setup.jpg
    (connectie = connection in english, was written in dutch)

    Now he has bought a portable and wants to connect using wifi. He must have access to the sub network where the server, desktop and win 95 pc's are in and internet.

    He also has a wrt54g that is not used.

    The server pc is also operating as a dhcp server for the other pc's. I would like to release that function from the server because he's always heavy loaded and the dhcp server dousn't respond sometimes.

    So the ideal setup would be something like this:
    Let de wrt54g connect to the philips router using wifi. When a pc is connected to the wrt, the wrt should lease an IP from the philips router.
    In other words the wrt must operate as a wireless switch.

    Is this possible? Or do yo have a better idea?
