View Full Version : Help with Linksys WET54G Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge?

You might try getting a long Ethernet cable between your WAP and the DSL
modem, and moving your WAP up as suggested. They hate transmission through
bulky structures, especially across angles that 'widen' the apparent junk
they need to travel through. I'm using wireless without problems (after
increasing the default packet size on my Win2K server to get rid of the
fast-forward effect).

Thanks -- first post, great work from the slim folks!

You might want to look into homeplug (ethernet bridging over the power
lines) as an alternative.
