    i have been told to buy WAP54G , and a lan card to connect te wap to the PC .

    1 Question : How should i setup that LAN using these devices ?

    2 question : when i wanted to test the WAPs i tested them in a distance of 1 m , one as a AP Client and the Other as an Access Point , it gave me 79 % Connection strenght , and the access Point PC was able to ping the Client one , but the Client one was not , is that normal ?

    3 question : After the test Thing , when i tryed in the 200 m Distance ( outdoor , in another building , Roof ) when i searched it again (AccessPoint , AP Client ) , the client was able to fing the Accesspoint , but whith Connection Strenght of 29% , and The ACCESS POINT Device was not able to ping the client one , is 29 % for a connection Enough ?

    4 question : What is "Bridge Mode " and how should i setup These 2 Pc into it ? when i bought the WAP the guy told me that u should made a bridge mode or something like that , would someone Pleaase explain me what it is and how ?

    5 question : is there any fimware that make the WAP Signal things go stronger ? and what are the MUSTDIE Firmware ?

    1) yes

    2) mmm, i think i can make ping in both directions (now i can't test it)

    3) 29% is a weak conection and maybe unstable, i'd put 2 outdoor antennas

    4) bridge mode is to connect 2 WAP/WRT devices that they are very separated, a mode to bridge 2 wlan

    5) there are some, but now i'm with de last official (3.05 in a WAP54G EU)

    6) yes :), in my case runs better

    you would be able to play, internet,... i do it with a 1.5Km (1 mile aprox) connection :D

    PD: sorry about my english

    i don't know it for sure, but if yo can't do it in bridge mode you can test in repeater mode.
