Trying to configure WRT54GS as a wireless client

    I have a WRT54GS v6 wireless router which I would like to configure as a wireless client.

    Can anyone tell me if this is possible?

    My main gateway/router on my main PC is a WAG354G v2. Another PC in the house connects to the gateway/router via a Linksys PCI card.

    There is a third PC in the house (with a lot of media on it) which, for some reason, is unable to access the WRT router at all - I've tried connecting to the WAG354G via an ethernet port - in which case my main PC can 'see' it but not access it - but I still cannot access the internet from PC3.

    I have successfully connected to the WRT router from a laptop with an ethernet PCMCIA adapter and updated the firmware to the latest revision.

    So far, so good.

    Now, in the short term, it would be useful to connect the WRT router to PC3 in order to retrieve the media there - via ethernet would be fine, via wireless would be better.

    Once that is done, it would be similarly useful to have the WRT router set to connect to the main gateway router for internet access and network filesharing and use it as the client for the laptop. I know there are easier ways, but I won't bore you with the details as to why and what I have tried and tested in this respect.

    So, is it possible to do what I want?
