I have a few PCs that I prefer to stay wired as they are all inthe same room anyway and are alredy configured. However my phone line/DSL is in an inconvinant location. My DSL Modem/Router is an actiontec GT704 that has wireless capability. I want to just have my 3-4 PCs on a hub with a wireless access point (like the Linksys WAP11 that I have) to communicate with the actiontec. I fiddled with it all day Saturday with AP modes and SSIDs and channels etc and could never get that leg of the communcation working.
I finally went out and bought another WAP and had it hard wired to the actiontec wireless router. Talk about redundant. Now the 2 WAPs talk to each other just fine in Bridge mode and the wireless features of the router are wasted. Plus my extra $50 or so that I had to spend.
Shouldn't this work with only the 1 WAP at the PCs
This has to be a fairly common set up and I hate to think that Linksys would be so proprietary.
