Hi, I am a Linksys wrt54gs tomato firmware fan. THing is I run a wireless (wrt54gs tomato firmware) Ap 400 feet from my office ( 192.168.1.x) and anouther the same connects as a wireless client and (found ethernet bridge is flaky) run 10.0.0.x Ips from that.. all is good.. but I wish this router just had a tad bit more gusto, more power

I have this nice 600mw card that seems supported with the madwifi.
a older celeron just sitting here so I grabbed the latest image.

so 1 ether net card and 1 wifi atheros card

I set the ip on the ethernet card. 10.0.0.1 and am able to connect to the web interface .

DHCP subnet 10.0.0.0/255.255.255.0 successfully saved
was able to grab a ip in the 10.0.0.10-99 range I setup

I was able to connect in managed mode to the AP with my wifi.
and grab a ip address 192.168.1.100

how do I get it to give my computer internet from that wifi conection
what would be my next step

when I am done I am hoping to have
Linksys
internet <--> wrt54gs <wifi>zeroshell<ethernet> switch

I notice when I click on the wireless part on the left menu I get
"This version does not include the web interface support for the WiFi. To manage the Wireless devices you need to run the wifi-manager script from the console by using a serial, VGA or ssh session."

Is there web interface support for wifi yet?

If Zeroshell box connects to Linksys AP just specify IP address of AP as default gateway via menu [Setup]->[Router]. Also put Wireless interface of Zeroshell box into NAT list [Setup]->[Router]->[NAT].

If you can't connect to AP from ZS, login to ZS via SSH and execute command
Code:
iwconfig

to see if your Wi-fi card is actually supported.

If it is supported and Wireless interface is named, for example, "wlan0", then execute
Code:
iwlist wlan0 scan

to see if Linksys AP is in range.

The NAT was the KEy..

After I added what looked like ETH02 (my wifi card) to the NAT everything fell into place..

so for othere would be run your zeroshell as a wifi client goers out there..

Release 1.0.beta11
setup wifi from shell

change your password to something you can use (you will need it alot)

<W> WiFi Manager
then
<N> New SSID
go through the particulars essid , encryption password all that...

then head on over to the web interface at it looked like 192.168.0.75 but I changed mine to 10.0.0.1

then specify IP address of AP as default gateway via menu [Setup]->[Router]. Also put Wireless interface of Zeroshell box into NAT list [Setup]->[Router]->[NAT].


big thanks to vmv4
