I looked around the messages, but could not find anything on this topic.
I need assistance with the CISCO WRT54G2 V1. I have an EnGenius EOC5611P (500mW) Repeater set up in my RV and it connects directly to the PC inside my RV using, a CAT 5 connection. I am now using a laptop and would like to connect to the EOC5611P using wireless. So, that brings me to my question, "Can I re-configure the WRT54G2 to connect the 5611?" (I would plug the router directly into the 5611). According to EnGenius support, it is possible, but the router would have to be re-configured, but they do not support this setup. I would purchase an EnGenius EAO 7530 which would work perfectly, but the price is $245. Here is the link to the 5611 information http://www.engeniustech.com/index.php?option=com_c
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

According to the scenario what do you mean by “RV”? What is the exact model number of the router? Is it a wireless or a wired router? How would like to connect the EnGenius EOC5611P as a repeater or as a bridge?

The WRT54G2 V1 is a CISCO wireless G Broadband router. The "RV" is my Recreational Vehicle that is used for camping. I have the EnGenius EOC 5611P (Would be considered a Client Bridge) as it picks up the WIFI signal from the camp ground Access Point. Currently the 5611 (with a 8dBi antenna) is permanently mounted on my RV's TV antenna assembly and is raised when we are camping. The 5611 is hard wired down into the RV (via a CAT 5 cable) and connected to my PC. Works great (AS IS) at receiving signals up to 1/2 mile away. I am now using a laptop and would like to connect to the 5611 using wireless and not be hard-wired to it. So I believe that the cable that currently is connected to my PC could be plugged into the WRT54G2 and my laptop could communicate with it using wireless. I tried plugging the 5611 into the WRT54G2 but was unable to see the 5611. The EnGenius support team said it is possible, but he WRT54G2 would have to be reconfigured. I believe that the WRT54G2 would be working as a client bridge.

As far as the initial setup is concern you need to do the setup:
You can configure all the settings on your Router Manually as well.
