Has anyone been able to use 2 Linksys wireless Access Points (WAP54G) to create a bridge. I can't get this set up to work and the there aren't any instructions on how to set this up except for telling the access points the Lan mac addresses of the other access points. Below is a diagram of my configuration. Any ideas?


|--- PC 192.168.1.100
|
|--- Router 192.168.1.1
|
|--- Access Point #1
| 192.168.1.45

Bad news- according to Linksys only the WAP11 can bridge- see their support article ID KB10934153 for info on this.

Hi, Not sure if you can do this with 2 WAP54G. I could be wrong, just a quick look about the devices doesnt show this functionality. I used a WET11 to do this and it works great. Better than cuttin holes in the ceiling.  :)
