    So what you want is something like this:

    [WRT54G_1] - wireless - [WRT54G_2] - wireless - [Laptop]

    IP's: _ _ _ _ _ _ _192.168.1.2

    Do you want WRT54G_2 to act as an extender because your Laptop is outside the range of the broadband router WRT54G_1 ?

    I used HyperWRT tofu 10.

    1. Configure WRT54G_1 as you normally would, and then:
    2. Set Wireless mode to WDS-AP
    3. Enter the wireless MAC address of WRT54G_2 under remote bridge. Look under Status -> Wireless of the OTHER router.

    4. In WRT54G_2 you would disable internet connection and DHCP and set the LAN gateway for
    5. Configure WRT54G_2 with same wireless settings as WRT54G_1 except that you would enter the wireless MAC address of WRT54G_1 under remote bridge
