Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using a WRT54G router to host a few computers and servers. I have another computer that is wired to a wireless bridge, which is a WET610N.

How do I access the admin page of my WRT54G through my bridge? "http://192.168.1.1/" gives no response.

What I really want is to be able to RDC into my other machines that are connected to my WRT54G through my computer that is connected to the WET610N bridge.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Your wireless APs cannot communicate with each other right now; the linksys devices should be configured to participate in a Wireless Distribution System with the same WPA keys and wifi channel.

I am not sure whether the stock linksys firmware supports this mode; several open-source firmware packages support WDS.
