    I currently get my internet through a service provided by the town in which i live. They basically provide wireless access throughout the town and at my place it is a good strong signal. Access is achieved through a login which logs your MAC address and keeps you online when you connect.

    I would like to create a home network via another router that uses this source as my internet connection. Can I simply create a bridge out of my WRT54G which connects to the access point and logs me in, and then connects to my home router which acts as a WAP for my house thus allowing my to have multiple computers connected to the net on my own home network? Not sure exactly what this would be called but would look like this:

    <TOWN WIRELESS ACCESS POINT> ----<WRT54G>----<2nd WRT54G>----<home network>
