    I have a Hawking Technology [HWRN1A] Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Router as my primary router with these current ipconfig /all log:

    DHCP Enabled: Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes
    IP address:
    Def. Gateway:
    DHCP server:
    DNS Servers:

    I also have a Linksys WRT54G V6 upgraded to DD-WRT v24 firmware. I want to bridge this router with my Hawking primary router. I do not know what numbers to put into the IP addresses, def. gateway etc. on the linksys router to bridge it. Using the information above, what do I need to do in settings to get this to work? I have changed the wireless setting to Client, and gave the same SSID as my primary router. Is this correct?

    ok nevermind, i got it to work. I have know wirelessly bridged my hawking primary router to my wrt54g v6 router. I now want to add a wrt54gR hardwire to the secondary bridged router. I reset the WRT54GR to factory, changed the following settings: gave it the same SSID as the primary router, changed channel from 6 to 1, and changed the IP address. It gets me connected but I cannot browse. HELP! what do I need to do to get the WRT54GR connected to my bridged WRT54G v6???

    ok guys I finally got it working. This setup I have, I been working on for months, Its for a exterior corridor hotel. I have two buildings. This is the hardware I have.

    RCA cable modem
    Hawking Tech 300N wireless router
    Linksys WRT54g wireless router, upgraded to DD-WRT, using as a bridge
    Linksys WRT54Gs wireless router
    Hawking Tech Hi-Gain 15dBi Outdoor Omni-Directional Antenna
    Hawking Tech HBB1 Network Booster

    My primary setup is the modem wired to the HBB1 network boster, then wired to the Hawking Tech router. The Hawking Tech router has removable antennas that can be connected to hi gain antennas. So my first building is connected everywhere, in some places I get low signal but I can still browse at high speeds. At the very end of my second building I put the briged WRT54G and hard wired it to the WRT54GS and gave it another SSID. Now my second building is connected everywhere, again I get low signal in some places but can still browse at high speeds. My ultimate goal was to be able to use only one SSID and browse at high speeds with good signal everywhere, but I could never get it. I checked again everywhere today and it seems to be working fine.
