Anybody point me to how to turn a WRT54GC, the compact wireless router,
into a bridge like the WET11 or WET54? I've found how to do it for the
-G, -GS and -GL versions but not the GC...
does this wrt54gc have a ethernnet switch on it or at least one 'LAN'
port, in addition to the WAN internet port and the wireless ?
are you trying to use this wireless 'rouoter' as an access point?
if so... turn the DHCP server *OFF* in the WRT, configure its
WAN/Internet port for a oddball static IP subnet you'll never run
into, like 10.251.251.1 mask 255.255.255.0, configure its LAN IP for a
unused static IP in your LAN (so you can reach its configuration), and
plug your existing LAN into the LAN side. this will provide an
etthernet->wireless bridge, which is what a clasic WAP is.
now, if you're trying to do the opposite, and turn this 'router' into
a client of another wireless network, and brideg that existing
wireless network to an ethernet, forget it, this hack won't work.
