    Hi guys,

    I have a WAG54G, 2 computers connected to it via ethernet, and 2 others wirelessly.

    A friend of mine has a WAG54G and we're supposedly in each other's range [is there any way to find out the signal power, etc of my AP?]

    Is there any way that we can link the two networks as one using our WAG54Gs?

    like, my WAG54G will have the IP and his will have, and accordingly, the computers connected to our internal networks will have non-conflicting IPs.

    And what we want is, one of the computers in my internal network, to be able to communicate with a computer in his internal network just like they were in the same LAN.

    Is it possible for the WAG54G to act as router/gateway to the clients connected from within, and at the same time, connect to another AP as a client?

    I've been searching all over but could not find an answer to this.
    I would really appreciate it if you could help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Never done it with WAP54G's but I believe that what you are tying to accomplish can be achieved with the Wireless Repeater functionality.

    Take a look at the following page, it addresses a WRT54G & WAP54G combination, but you'll notice that the last screenshot includes a note that says the wireless repeater feature will work with WAP54G's. It should get you moving in the right direction.


    Good Luck.
