    Hello,

    Im trying to find out if a network combination is possible with the particular hardware I have at the moment.

    I have looked thourgh other threads but could not find exactly this.

    The hardware I have is : Hawking HWBA54g wireless bridge and a linksys WRT54G2 V1 router

    I have the Hawking bridge setup picking up a wireless network from the hanger across from it, it picks this up fine and I can plug a wired connection and use the net.

    What I want to do is plug the WRT54G Router into the Bridge to broadcast the connection wirelessly in that hanger.

    Is this possible with the hardware I have?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou

    I don't see why not. You should be able to simply plug them together. If the remote wireless network has the same 192.168.1.x base address as your Linksys, you will have to configure the Linksys to a different base address, say 192.168.2.1. You obviously also want the channel of the Linksys as far away from the bridge channel as possible to minimize crosstalk.
