    Can this be done? I have been googling for solution and only end up confused. I just need it to operate as a access point. There's got to be some configuration possible.

    Using 54G as AP

    Just connect the 54G via one of its LAN ports - not the internet/WAN port. Disable its DHCP and your done.

    Also set it as a router and not a gateway. If its IP-Address conflicts with the main router change it. If the Main router has a local address of, chnage the local address of the router you are using as an AP to This address must be outside the range of addresses your DHCP server is issuing.
