Is it possible to use a Linksys WRT54G for client mode and access point mode at the same time?

by on September 26, 2011

Q: I heard that ” Linksys WRT54G ” firmware can be modified to support additional features like CLIENT MODE AND ACCESS POINT MODE at same time. My doubt is that does the router uses each antenna for different purpose. ie one for client mode and another for access point mode. if yes pls tell me how to find out which one is for client mode because I want to replace the antenna with a directional one so the distant access point can be seen by the router.

    It sounds like you want Repeater Bridge mode:

    One antenna sends data and the other receives it, so you won’t be able to simply have one of the antennas going in a different direction.

    I wouldn’t expect a WRT54G to be able to support double duty with that kind of range.

    You can set the TX power yourself using 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT. Please read the instructions fully before attempting any updates or changes.
