Linksys WRT54G - How to config it as a wireless switch (rather than a router) ?
Posted on 2007-10-04
Since my WRT54G always experience some sort of intermittent wireless disconnection even after firmware upgrade AND to the vendor for maintenance, therefore, I abandon it to use as a boardband router. Instead, I use a WIRED router connected to the boardband modem and try to plug the WRT54G into one of its port and on the hope that it can be used as a wireless switch cause I may still use it for my PDA for short connection of receiving weather update and email update only.
I do certified that the wired router have no problems in connecting to the internet by plugging my desktop into it for internet access. Yet, no matter how I config my WRT54G, I can not make it connection to it no matter via my PDA or notebook. In some cases, even can connected to it, I can never access the internet.
May any one help me to solve this or I need to abandon this WRT54G completely.
