    I picked up a second WRT54G to play with a bit and I have some questions for the experts.

    1) What is the advantage over WDS over simple Client mode. The goal is to establish a bridge to BOTH wireless and wired clients
    2) What is the difference between lazywds and WDS
    3) are there differences (Besides the GUI) in the implementation of client mode and/or WDS between third party firmwares (hyper, svea, ewrt).
    4) What are the negatives in using an Alchemy as a Client (either Client or WDS) to a stock Linky router?

    I have been playing with differernt firmwares connecting to my main router (hyperWRT) in both client and WDS mode. They all seem to work fine. Obvioulsy, if you use hyperwrt you need to use the command line to build the bridge (hopefully that will change soon)

    This is way too much fun
