    Hello !

    I've flased my WRT54GS v6 with DD-WRT v23 SP2 micro, and i have a little problem.

    I donf find the repeter mode. In wireless mode, i have : AP, Client, Client Brigde et AdHock.

    I have freebox (french) with wifi pcmcia adapter and 4 pc.

    I want use the wrt54gs only in repeter mode, because the signal of my freebox cant go at 2 pc.

    I think : the repeter mode is not present on micro distrib ?

    (Sorry for my english, but i was french student , i havent fin a solution in french...).



    PS : i've been used the tutorial for flash the firmware...

    DD-WRT V23 SP2 micro has a "WDS" tab under "Wireless". So set your "Wireless mode" to AP, and then set up WDS, and you have "AP+WDS".

    V23 does not have "Repeater Mode", i.e. multiple SSIDs and such.

    Thanks, but me freebox (modem) is actually configured in routeur mode. (for internet).

    I shutdown the routeur ? and configure my freebox in modem only ?

    Or my freebox keep router mode and i set my wrt54gs cpnnection type : Disable ? (only gateway => freebox?)

    I thried this solution, and reply after.

    Good Day

    You can disable the WRT's WAN connection, and then not use the WRT's WAN port. This way the WRT is just a wireless AP and a network switch, not a router.

    Thus, you keep your freebox in router mode, and connect the WRT from a LAN port to the modem.
