    I've done some searching but I can't find anything.

    Anyhow... Can I connect two WRT54G to communicate with one another over the wireless antennas? Then have one of them, supply the internet…. How would I go about configuring the two router to communicate with one another ?

    I used the latest versions of HyperWRT because WDS is point-n-click easy, and you can use WPA AES security.

    Most frequently, I will plug two wrt54G/GS together using the switch ports and then turn DHCP off on the second unit. This, of course, uses a really long wire between the two. But, if you set different channels, same SSID and consecutive IP addresses (, then you get a HUGE wireless network that operates at full speed, nonstop, trouble free.
