    Hello all

    I am trying to connect several computers to the internet but they are out of range of the access point I need to connect to. I have a Linksys WRT54GL router with attached Super Cantenna that can view the access point but I don't know how to connect the two (if this is even possible). I only have access to the settings of my router not the access point. Does a WRT54GL have bridging capabilities? If not would a Linksys WAP54G help(I must use cantenna compatible devices listed here: http://www.cantenna.com/wifi-antenna/index.html

    My knowledge of networking is limited but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The WRT54GL does not have wireless bridge capability, but if you load the DD-WRT 3rd party firmware, it will give you wireless bridge capability.
