Using WRT54GS in Client Mode

    I have a SpeedStream router (wireless router/DSL combo) currently configured for wireless networking. My PC is connected to this. Two rooms from here I have a second router, my WRT54GS which has the newest DD-WRT firmware installed. How in the world can I configure my Linksys router in client mode so that it connects?

    What I'm looking to achieve is something like one large network made out of two halves (each router has 1 thing connected by wire) so that the devices on each router can communicate with one another.

    So, to draw it out:

    PC <-> SpeedStream 6520 <-> ~~wireless~~ <-> WRT54GS <-> XBOX

    Can someone please guide me through the settings for this? If you think you can help, I'd really appreciate it here or, better yet, on MSN at
