    Hello All.

    I've been reading all the articles and help files I could find.. to no avail.
    I'm trying to use my 2nd WRT54Gx router as a bridge but I am failing. Maybe I'm missing a few steps? I've tried about every method I've seen. They seem to contradict each other at times.. WDS seems like what I need - if I could get it to work! LOL

    Is there a straightforward step-by-step anywhere? I'm running the Sveasoft code on 2 routers, 1 G & 1 GS. I have the G connected & working with my DSL line. I need the GS a few rooms away and I want to use the wireless connection to the G and use the switch ports on the GS to connect a few systems. I am using WEP security.

    I am relatively sure it can be done but all my attempts have failed. Linksys now sells a WET54GS5 which supposedly performs this function so should I spend the $150 and forego my attempts?
    Ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?
