Hello Everyone,
I stream my underwater fish cameras over the internet in real time. Getting signal over a distance is my issue. What I have right now is this: Belkin F5D7234-4 (positioned by the internet modem on the base computerI, a WRT54g router flashed with DD WRT (I plugged this router into the Belkin via 100' of Cat5e to extend the signal, then I moved it to another building) and finally a inexpensive Belkin USB adapter.
I was not able to connect to the Belkin router, so I took the Linksys and 100' of Cat5e and moved it to a closer building to me. Seems I still am not getting good connection. I have the usb adapter at the camera site, but cannot pick up the WRT54g.
1) Would the router be a better means of picking up internet signal that far away instead of the Belkin usb adapter?
2) I considered moving the Belkin out to wher the WRT54g is and then the WRT54g to the camera location. If you think that would work, how do I do it? I know it would hvae to go into bridge mode or something, but exactly how do I do that?

Thank you,
Gary Bunnell
