WRT54G as an Access Point

Discussion in 'Cisco/Linksys Wireless Routers' started by DIGITALgimpus, Jan 11, 2005.

  1. I have a Netgear FM114P, but it's only got 802.11b support. I was wondering if anyone has used a WRT54G as an Access Point, rather than a router. Does anyone know if such support exists (out of the box).

    Change the IP address of the WRT54G conflicts with that of your Netgear FM114P. Changed the ssid and channel not to conflict with the Netgear FM114P unless yoou can disable the the radion of the Netgear FM114P. Disable the DHCP server on the WRT54G. Set up the security on the WRT54G to WEP or WPA-PSK. On Advanced router setting change the WRT54G from gateway to router. Power down the WRT54G and connect port four of the WRT54G to one of the ports of the Netgear FM114P. The WRT54G will act as a three port switch. The instruction can be found on the Linksys website in the knowledgebase at this url:http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin...2U9MSZwX3NlYXJjaF90ZXh0PXR3byByb3V0ZXI*&p_li=
