I recently have found a need to extend my wireless network, and went with tomato to bridge 2 routers. I purchased an asus rt-n16 to go with the old standard wrt54gl. I have used the standard linksys firmware until now; I didn't have need for anything fancy. I was able to flash without issue and get both routers up and running. Both routers work from both the lan and wan sides, they just don't seem to talk to each other. I set them up with the same SSID, channel, as AP+WDS. I tried entering the MAC addresses of the other wireless on both, as well as automatic. I tried with and without DHCP on the remote router. I was able to connect to each with a wireless device (changed SSID on remote) so it wouldn't seem to be a WPA password issue. I tried G only, and B+G. I'm using the stock front page version on the GL and (obviously?) the teddybear mod on the asus. My thoughts at this point (probably wrong) are that either the two versions of firmware are incompatible for this purpose, or the differing hardware is causing a problem. Frankly, neither explanation makes sense to me. I am a newb here, but not exactly a tech newb. I've done some serious Tivo hacking and run the corporate IT. I say that only to mean that although I'm probably stupid here, just not completely stupid. Perhaps someone has already chewed up this road and can save me hours of trial and error. Thanks in advance!
