WRT54G as AP no routing..


Can I use a WRT54GS with stock linksys firmware as AP with just connecting a network cable to one of the LAN ports and assign a static LAN IP? I don't want any routing, just to extend a cabled network a bit.

If yes, which 'Internet connection type' do I select (if it does matter at all as I don't use the WAN port).

Finally, can I run a WRT54GS with stock linksys fw also as wireless client to the above AP?

thanks for comments ;-)

Yes. See the FAQ at: |

Doesn't matter since you're NOT using the router section. Do not plug anything into the WAN (internet) port.

No. That will require alternative firmware. See: |
