I recently replaced a Linksys WRT54GS router on my network with a Buffalo WHR-HP-54GS. Both routers are flashed with Tomato. I'm thinking of using the Linksys as an access point on the other side of my house to boost the signal, but I don't know if it can be configured that way or how to do it. I haven't found any useful info searching through the Linksys support site. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks
PS - I do have a wire on the other end of my house, so I can set up the access point as wired.
Thanks. I did read through that thread before posting, but it got pretty confusing. I was hoping maybe someone who had some tomato experience could help me. I'll take another look through the thread, though.
Thanks. This may be a dumb question, but how do I configure the second router? I know I type in the IP address to bring up the configuration screen on the router, but how do I do that on the second one? If I assign it an address of 192.168.1.3, do I type that in to bring up the screen to configure it and turn off DHCP?
your using two different brands and I dont know what the first ones default ip is...
but usually when configuring you would have the routers disconnected from each other and if they are both 192.168.1.3 then you would put 192.168.1.3 in your browser and with most residential routers you can then access the setup pages. in the linksys frmware, tomato may be in a diferent location, you can change the ip address aout half way down on the home screen.
once the two routers have two different ips...lets say 192.168.1.1 for the first router with 192.168.1.2 for the second you can connect them and in your browser type in either address and it will take you to the correct router.
