I'm currently using the following wired setup:
DSLModem---Hub-------Router--IPPhone | | PC PC
Now, the line between the hub and the router goes through my whole house and I wanted to get rid of it so I bought a Linksys WRT54G and a WAP54G. My reasoning was the following:
DSLRouter---WRT54-)) ((--WAP54G--Hub--Router--IPPhone | ((-PC PC
The WAP54G is running in Client mode. The reason for this is that I want to be able to connect my laptop wirelessly to the WRT54G.
Now comes the tricky part. The ISP is handing out the IP's via DHCP and I'm wondering if it's possible for all devices (except the IPPhone) to get an IP address from this DHCP pool?
How do I get the DHCP traffic over the wireless connection? Or in more details, the DHCP-Discover and DHCP-Request packets from the Router & PC on the right would need to be forwarded from the WAP54G to the DSLRouter and the DHCP-Offer and DHCP-ACk packets would need to be forwarded from the WRT54G to the Router.
I know the WRT54G also has a buildin DHCP server, so if all the devices (except the IPPhone) can get an IP from this one, that would be fine also (as the WRT54G has routing capabilities). In that case it's just the WAP54G that would need to pass over the DHCP traffic.
Will it work by default? Anybody ever succeeded in building such a setup?
