    Hi there. I checked the forums, but I still feel lost...

    My current network looks like this:

    A WRT54GS, connected to a DSL modem, with several wireless PC's attached (for shared Internet access and LAN gaming).

    Two gigabit switches, connecting several PC's.

    Now, I want to merge those two networks. I thought about connecting a WAP54G to one of the gigabit switches, would this work? I mean, is the WRT54GS sufficient to connect to the Internet, several wireless PC's _and_ the WAP54G at the same time? As far as I know, it should work with the WAP in client mode, but are all the wired PC's able to communicate with the wireless PC's and access the Internet that way?

    Thanks for your help!

    OK, checked again. Now, I think I understand that, to achieve what I wanted, I would need two WRT54G(S), connected using WDS?
