    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 zeroshell 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

    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

    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)

    WiFi Manager
    then
    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
