Bridging issues...

    Linksys wizards:
    I have two wrt54g routers. Both are loaded with sveasoft firmware. Router A is attached to my cable modem, and router B is supposed to be a wireless->ethernet bridge. I have a hub out of one of the LAN ports with three computers attached to it. (I read somewhere that you can only use one of the LAN ports if you use the wrt54g as a bridge - still correct?)

    I am having a few issues:
    A) One of the computers attached to the hub on router B has a very intermittent connection to the internet, while my "main" computer has a pretty stable connection. Is there some sort of problem with having more than one system hooked to the bridge?

    B) Under the "Advanced Routing" tab under the "Setup" main category, I have my router B (the bridge) set as a RIP2 Router. This is the only way that I can ping my gateway. When I have that option set to gateway, I cannot ping my router A (the main one). However, in both settings, I can still get out to the internet. Yes, I can get to the internet, but not ping my router A. I don't think there is any ICMP filtering going on, either. Very bizarre. Also, I have not yet found a way to ping any other host on my network that is not my router A or on the hub from router B. This is the most weird part of my problems.

    C) Finally, I'm trying to ssh/telnet to the router B, but I don't know what username to give it...yes, this might be stupid. I haven't found the option to give it one, either...any help?

    I thank anyone who responds in advance. If you might need any info to help me out, please ask.

    Thanks again,
