I recently purchased a Buffalo N600 wireless router which came with DD-WRT pre-installed. I want to take my old wireless router, a Linksys WRT54GL, also with DD-WRT pre-installed, and use it as a wireless bridge for my HTPC and Blu-Ray player in the other room. I other words, I'm trying to connect two WIRED networks via the wireless on the routers.
I followed exactly the instructions from DD-WRT's manual for 'Client Bridged', however I'm still not able to connect the two routers correctly when encryption is enabled (WPA2-Personal Mixed). However, I am able to connect the two routers when there is NO encryption.
I've checked, double checked, and triple checked that EVERYTHING is the same on BOTH routers:
Routers 1 & 2
Encryption: WPA2-Personal Mixed
Wireless Mode: G-Only
Wireless Channel: 6
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Primary Router #1 (Buffalo N600)
IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Firewall: Enabled w/ defaults
DCHP: Enabled as DHCP Server
Secondary Router #2 (Linksys WRT54GL)
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Firewall: Disabled as per DD-WRT instructions
I'm looking for any settings that I may have missed, or settings that may need to be changed in order for this work.
