Introduction

If you have a wireless router connected to the internet in 1 location and would like to connect wired clients in a remote location to allow shared interent, one solution is to use Client Mode Wireless. This requires the remote router is a WRT54G running DD-WRT (or similar firmware). The WRT running client mode will connect to the main router as though it were any other computer, and will share the connection as though the main router were connected directly to its WAN port. This means that both routers will be on seperate subnets--and thus the clients will all be on seperate subnets), and NAT will exist between the routers so port forwarding will need to be done at both routers, not just the main router.

For those who like like all computers to be on the same subnet, try running the WRT as a Wireless Bridge


Instructions

A very good forum post was made out running a router in client wireless mode.

This page should eventually contain the information in the link above, along with any DD-WRT specific updates to the instructions.
