used to use a linksys WRT54GL router coupled with a adsl2+ modem for my internet connection and wifi needs. However, parents have just upgraded to Orcon Genius, which has its own wifi, modem and phone stuff.
So i thought i'd use the linksys WRT54GL which is running Tomato firmware, as a signal booster, and as a point to plug the TV in via wired LAN. The genius box is downstairs, and the TV is upstairs.
My problem is that having set the WRT54GL to the same settings as the genius router, (different channel though), its not seeing it as one network. It seems that if the linksys is off, i can connect to the orcon (and thus the internet) but when i switch the linksys on, i cant get internet, so can only log into the linksys.
orcon is setup as 10.1.1.1 and is DHCP server
have linksys setup as 10.1.1.2, DHCP server disabled. is in Acess point and WDS mode.
both have same SSID, same password, same seciurity protocol, just different channels (6 and 11)
any advice to help fic this would be awesome
