How To Set Up Network With Two WRT54G's


Recommended Posts

First I have a network with one  Linksys WRT54G v2.2 (firmware DD-WRT) connected to 2 wired PCs.

Next, upstairs I have 3 wireless PCs all working together...

I want to add 2 more PCs. One is wireless already, that one is easy....

Now the question is can I hook another wired PC to another WRT54G v5 with stock firmware upstairs

and connect to the Router downstairs......If it is possible, can  hook a Xbox360 to the one up stairs too...

Now I looked into it earlier and under Wireless> Basic Settings> Wireless mode in the DD-WRT router if i change that to client I

think it sounds like it should work but cant find the setting in the stock firmware one..

Thanks for the help

I take it you want the two to comunicate wirelessly.....like WDS mode.

Why not put ddwrt on the second wrt54g ver5.it's supported

I would have sugested Tomato Firmware.....but the wrt54 ver5 and newer arn't supported with that.

I run 2 wrt54gl's Tomato Firmware in WDS/Access point mode at over 800 feet apart.
