My situation is this:
I have a WRT54G as my main router, hooking my desktop, printer, external HD and two laptops together as a wireless network
I also have a BD player and a Satellite STB that have ethernet ports for connecting to the internet for their respective functions (BD Live and On Demand)
I got the WRT54G2 to use as an access point to connect the BD and Sat wirelessly to the internet to make use of their functions. Hook the ethernet cables from either box to the lan ports and use the wireless function to communicate with the 54G to get whatever info is being requested.
The lit for the G2 touts it as being able to be used as an access point. But in a chat with a Linksys tech, he said I cannot use it in conjunction with my 54G, and suggested a wireless bridge or access point , which means I would need a hub to connect the two boxes to the network. I was hoping for as simple an operation as possible and as inexpensive as possible.
Any ideas how to make it work? Would I need to swap my routers around? (G2 as main and 54G as access pt)
Thanks for any help....
