    I'm trying to set up a network connection between two houses.

    Because of the distance (approx 50 meters) and other infrastructure, I'll have to make a part of the connection wireless.

    The DSL modem is connected to a router witch in turn is connected both to a computer and through cable to a wrt54g. The wrt54g is placed so that it have the best visability for the wrt54g in the other house. This wrt54g in turn is connected to a computer through cable.


    I'm a newbie in wireless networking and I'm not sure if this will work...

    As I have understand I'll have to set the wrt54gs in bridge mode? Is this possible with the original firmware or do I have to install another e.g. dd-wrt?

    You will need to install custom firmware.

    I am trying to do very much the same thing. Just replaced my WRT54G with a WRT54GX4. Now I want to use my original WRT54G as a bridge (to connect to my ReplayTV DVR).

    So I'm trying to look like this: Cable modem-----Linksys RTP 300 (for my Vonage VoIP)-----WRT54GX4~~~~~WRT54g-----ReplayTV box

    Where do I get custom firmware for my WRT54G to operate it in bridge mode? Is there a particular version I need?
