    I brought a wrt54gl router to setup as an access router using tomato firmware.I have the tomato program running and when i do a wireless survey I see the the other router that i want to connect to which is at 100 ft. distance using an external antenna hook to the right antenna on router.The problem is I can't get the laptop to connect to the internet.What am I doing wrong.I have been at this for 5 days and have change the settings in the firmare program more times then I care to count.They make it sound so simple,just buy the router download tomato and bingo you should hook up to my other router at least that's what is implied.Please help but please keep the tech talk to just above novice level..

    hi, I cannot understand very well what type of installation you want to do... Could you explain it better?

    Sounds like he needs to use the following procedure:

    Under Windows -> control panel -> network connections -> local area connection -> properties -> Internet Protocol -> properties

    Use the following settings:
    ip address:
    subnet mask:
    default gateway:
    preferred DNS:

    press OK, OK, close

    open a command prompt and type


    voila! you're finished
