Jeff Liebermann - since you seem to be the one in the know, I have a question for you, other may comment on this as well.
I have DSL and a Buffalo WHR-G54S with DD-WRT v23 SP2 firmware, looking at this unit settings for wireless mode I see AP, Client and Client Bridged.
Now for the situation and questions, in the near future, I hope I will be selling my home and hitting the road in an RV to travel this great country of ours. However, I will not be able to make it without Internet access (what has the world come to).
The question is a lot of RV parks have Wi-Fi, however it is not always available throughout the complete site. What is the best way to get this to my RV and share it with both my wife's and I laptops? These laptops have built in wireless adapters I would prefer to keeps using these and not get an external USB or PCMCIA adapter. I know an external adapter would allow me to change the antenna to a higher gain, but I would have to do this to both PC.
I am thing a small dish type antenna or some other high gain directional antenna connected to the WHR-G54S that can get the signal to the RV and the let the two Laptops connect to the WHR-G54S, would something like this work? Would I need more than one WHR-G54S? I have read somewhere that I could use this in bridge mode however, I would need access to the parks Router to enter my MAC Address, I know the park is not going to allow this, so what are my options? Also, even it they did, my WHR-G54S in bridge mode would connect to the parks router wirelessly, so I would have to connect to it through wired ethernet, but I still want the Laptops to use wireless connections? Also in the the setup that you recommend if there is any WEB site as to how to set this up, the links would be greatly appreciated. Need to know thing like SSID the same or not, Channel must be different.
Thank for you time in this matter,
