    I need to expand more range for my router WRT54GX. Should I get another WRT54GX or WAP54GX? I want to connect both in wireless with no cable wired. My current router is connected to the cable modem.

    The current WRT54GX does not support bridging or repeating so you are out of luck trying to do it wirelessly. The WAP54GX does not have any bridge or repeater mode either. There currently is no third party firmware available.

    What about WRT54GX (with internet) wired to WRT54GS?

    Then I can have wired and wireless clients connect to the GS which further routes to the internet through the GX.

    and you can crank up the range on the gs with 3rd party firmware.
