    I have just installed tomato on my wrt54g router and would like to use the router in my car for my car puter. What I am trying to do is be able to hook up to the internet using it as a repeater. I want to be able to have an external antenna on my car and the router in my truck hooked to the computer with rj45 cable and be able to park outside some place with free wifi and connect to the net.
    How can this be done????? I know someone that used to do it with openwrt, but I no longer talk to him :frown:

    The easiest way is to use the wireless radio on the router to connect to the free hotspot as a client... then connect your laptop via cable to the router. Basically the wireless interface on your router becomes the WAN interface.

    I'm not sure WDS would be an option as you would not have control of the free hotspot router to configure it.
