    I have a linksys wrt54g v. 2 which I would like to
    make into a bridge. My cable modem is connected to a non wireless
    router (linksys BEFSR41). The non wireless router is then connected
    to an access point (belkin F5D6130) which sends a wireless signal on
    the B frequency. I have downloaded the Satori 4.0 firmware to make
    the wrt54g into a bridge. I want the wrt54g to accept signals from
    the belkin access point which is wired to the non wirless router. I
    hope the wrt54g can take the signals so, I can plug a Cat5 in the LAN
    ports and hook the other end of the cable to my xbox. I have tried to
    substitute the router in your tutorial with my access point, but I get
    confused on what IP and MAC address I use (the access point's or the
    BEFSR41?) If you guys could help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    cable modem------BEFSR41 (non wireless)---------Acess Point (connected
    to router's lan port)

    ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) wrt54g------Xbox (via Cat5 in the wrt54g lan port)

    I don't mind ptting the router in client mode either. All I want the
    wrt54g to do is accept the access point's signal and transfer it
    through the ports into the Xbox for live play.

    Thanks guys. You rock.

    no because the access point I have does not act like a bridge. It really sucks, but I cant spend money to buy a bridge or another wrt54g. Here is the access point I have. Access POINT

    any help guys?

    To access the Net all devices have to have gateway set to the BEFSR41 Routers IP (

    set the access point as

    set WRT54G as

    the wrt54g neads to be put in client mode and "router mode" (not gateway)

    this is how i would think it should be.

    thanks for your help, but it doesnt seem to be working. Should I disable DHCP or use static or something?
