    I have an existing network with my befw11s4 v.2- wired and wireless including voip.

    I need to connect an ethernet device (not a pc) to my network, in a location that does not have an ethernet access and I cannot run cable.

    I would like to use the wrt54g as a "bridge" (not sure if this is the right term) to connect this non-pc ethernet device to my existing network.

    Can this be done with two different routers and the sveasoft firmware on the wrt54g?

    And if so, could someone direct me to the easiest solution?

    In other words, I would like to use the wrt54g as a wet11.

    Yeah, you can most certainly do this!

    You would run the WRT54G in 'Client' Mode

    This setting can be awfully tricky, but there are a ton of threads on getting it to work right - I think we might have to condense it into an official guide.

    Both the sveasoft satori and alchemy firmwares provides this mode.I was running in this mode to connect my SliMP3 to my network. Have the SliMP3 connected to GS running in client mode connected to another GS that serves as my main router.

    If you've got anymore questions, let us know!

    So it wouldn't matter that the MAIN router is an older befw11s4? I can still use the wrt54g as a client to connect to the befw11s4?

    I've looked at most of the threads concerning how to set up the wrt54g as a client, but they always have it connecting to another wrt54g in the example.

    I'll keep looking around- thanks for your help!

    nope, it should work just fine as a client as any G client would when connecting to a B access point.
