    my aim is it to connect my network with the from my neighbour, because my neighbour wants to use my Internet connection.

    Until Now I used this model.

    WRT54G (Client) (Neighbour) => USR5450 (AP)

    Now I want to change this because my neighbour wants his own WLAN Net.
    Is it possible to make this with this conception?

    WRT54G (AP) (Neighbour) <= WDS => WRT54G (AP)

    Last but not least, is it possible to separate these to Networks?

    Thanks for your help!

    I just want to make sure I got this right before I say anything.

    You have your network with a USR5450 access point.
    Your neighbor is currently using your internet connection by connecting to your network via wireless.

    The goal is:
    Your neighbor is to have his own WLAN, while using your internet connection via wireless.

    Not a big deal. You should read some of the stuff I've written. :lol: Some of it is pretty bad.

    There might be better ways, but here is what comes to mind.

    Your neighbor could setup a router, with an access point running in AP Client Mode connected to the WAN (Internet) port. The router's WAN and AP would receive their IP Addresses from your AP.

    You will probably have to have your networks on seperate subnets, because I think your neighbor's router would otherwise complain about a subnet conflict between the WAN and LAN.

    Your Network
    IP Addresses: 192.168.x.x
    Subnet Mask:

    Neighbor's Network
    IP Addresses: 172.16.x.x
    Subnet Mask:

    That's just one possible way to address both networks. As far as everything else, I may or may not be missing something, or there may be a better way. You can certainly give this a try, and be sure to post the results. If it works, GREAT! You'll be all set. If it doesn't, I'll be more than happy to help you figure it out, as I'm sure others would be as well.

    Good luck!
