Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G

I'm trying to setup an access point (wap54g) upstairs and have a linksys wireless router downstairs (wap54g). I already have 2 computers downstairs connected to the wireless network because they are both accessing the internet fine. I took the wireless MAC address from the linksys firmware and entered it into both the bridge fields and repeater fields (separately) and can't seem to get the access point to connect. Currently my access point runs to a switch, which connects to the upstairs computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G

Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at

Linksys WAP54g v3.1.Can't connect more than 1 computer wirelessly

That is normal for you not to be able to get online at the same time, you are using a Wireless access point, you access point does not have a dhcp server to share the internet on both laptops. What you should have put in there is a wireless router, for Linksys the model of a wireless router will be WRT54G or any model as long as it's a router.
