WRT54G as a WAP and switch Tags: Configuration Wireless Access Switch Wireless Networking Last response: November 5, 2010 5:20 PM in Wireless Networking Share bimbim18 November 4, 2010 12:26:56 PM I need to use my WRT54G as both a WAP and a switch. I have a laptop I will be using,connected wirelessly to my Netgear router, but also have a VOIP phone for work that has to be hardwired to work. I have a Netgear 3700 I am going to be using as my main router (I'm renting a studio and this will be on the landlady's side) and the WRT54G as the WAP, which I plan on plugging the phone into. I tried for 5 hours yesterday but could not get it to work. Any tips?

Or will you connect to it via wireless using you Linksys as a repeater? Will you be using WEP or WPA? m 0 l bimbim18 November 5, 2010 1:09:43 PM The Netgear is in one room.
