Connect Linksys WAG354G and Netgear DG834G wireless routers, wirelessly.

    I'm trying to connect two wireless routers to each other so one is a wireless access point (the Netgear in the image) and the other is essentially just acting as a wireless card (the Linksys in the image, although I'll happily do them the other way around if required)

    See the diagram below for what I mean. The bit I can't get to work (or rather, work out how to do) is in red (the wireless router to wireless router connection)

    Can anyone help?

    It is impossible to do that because WDS is required on each AP and none of them support it...

    I saw something that suggested I might be able to get this to work if I can get either of them into wireless bridge mode, although it wasn't clear about the wireless bridge mode

    Is that true - is there such a thing as wireless bridge mode or were they really referring to modem (adsl) bridge mode (i.e. bridge the adsl modem part of either router directly to another router via a wired connection)

    No it's impossible, the only one Linksys gateway supporting WDS is the WAG54G 1.2 with firmware 1.02.7 at least.

    See ma page here !

    Don't confuse with the "client bridge" mode of DD-WRT transforming a WRT in client (not AP)...

    OK, I understand

    Thanks for your help :)
