    Hello. I am having some troubles setting up my network. I have a business and I need to have 2 computers hardwired through ethernet cables in the front and about 75 yards away I need to have wireless internet in the warehouse. What I have done is purchased Verizon DSL with a Westin Modem/Router combo and have a Linksys WRT54GS.

    What I want to do is this: I have a 150 foot ethernet cable connecting my modem to the WRT54GS. I want the WRT54GS to only send out a wireless signal (as I don't have anything hardwired to it in the warehouse)and I want the Westin Modem/Router combo to only work via hardwired ethernet cables. What is the set up I need to use and what are the steps? I've been reading multiple things like use the WRT54GS as a repeater or put it in client mode or use it as a wireless ethernet bridge. Quite frankly, I have no idea what to do and I really want to avoid having to hire someone or pay a troubleshooting fee.

    Thanks a lot.
