The big problem was that it would not bridge packets from the 2.4GHz
side to the 5.8GHz side. This is normally not a problem, but the

DD-WRT. I disabled 2.4GHz operation in the WRT55AG and set it up as
an access point (DHCP server off). I ran a CAT5 cable between the LAN
ports on the WRT54G and the WRT55AG. The result was a functional dual
