I wanted to use  both of my 2wire 2701hg-b together to avoid cable run to my DirecTV STB from my gateway (GW) 2wire.

So, the  configuration I am after is:

phone line-->2wire 2701hg-b (GW) data port --(wireless connect)--- to 2wire2701hg-b (AP) -->DirecTV Ethernet port.

If I set up the second 2wire2701g-b (AP) with the exact same SSID and WEP Key and turn off DHCP; set up a unique hardware IP (so they are not both 192.168.1.254) ...  Is this close or is this configuration not possible?

Thanks,
David
