    First - if I've missed this discussion in the FAQ's - I apologize....

    I bought a WAP54G (v3.1) in order to try to relay the wireless from my local school to my computer. A laptop with a wireless card can access the connection at the other side of the building, so in theory it should be possible. My USB wireless adapter is working well, and can see the AP.

    The problem is that the software setup for the AP requires that it must connect to the router or switch in order to configure the IP address, etc.

    Any ideas or help? A link would be fine...Please use idiotspeak if at all possible. Thanks, Mattydee (true newbie)

    I appreciate the reply Esquire! Do you know if the WRT54G can function in repeater mode to be picked up by my USB adaptor?
