    The ISP placed a Wlan PCI card to my computer, and an antenna on the roof. I want to share the internet for 4 computers. So i bought a WRT54G v2.2, and now works with alchemy final firmware. I have a lot of documentation, but I cant get the internet over the WLAN. Help me please.

    Which authentication method is your ISP using? If it's a standard WLAN authentication method like Radius, you can just put your WRT54G into client mode and connect it directly to your ISP via WLAN. Now you can connect your 4 computers to the LAN ports of the WRT54G.
    There is a good tutorial somewhere here in this forum, how to setup client mode on a WRT54G.

    If your ISP is using PPTP on top of the WLAN connection for authentication (possible, but unlikely) you might also be able to use the WRT54G as endpoint of the WLAN connection. Just set it in client mode and additionally configure the internal VPN server accordingly. I think, you'll also find a VPN tutorial here.

    If your ISP is using some proprietary authentication method, you won't be able to connect the WRT54G directly to you ISP.
