Well of course when you hook up the WRT54G you don't want to use the WAN
connector and use just the lan like a hub, have you tried changing your
operating mode from gateway to something else.  I know on the Satori
firmware you can set it to Gateway, RIPv2 or OSPF on the Advanced
Routing section of the Setup tab.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Captive Portal and WRT54G

Hi there,

I have installed m0n0wall 1.2b8 on a wrap box, configured the captive 
portal for radius authentication and everything worked very fine when I 
had an D-Link 2000AP+ accesspoint attached to the m0n0wall.

Now I would like to use a Linksys WRT54G as accesspoint (with sveasoft 
alchemy firmware), because it would be nice to extend the wireless range

using WDS. Unfortunately, the authentication does not work anymore, 
because the IP and MAC address of the accesspoint are authenticated, and

not the client...

As I have read before, it is not possible to use an IP routed network 
behind the captiveportal, but how can I disable the router in the WRT54G

in that way that it acts like a simple accesspoint? Using WDS later 
should not be any problem because it is a MAC-layer protocol, am I right


Thanks a lot for any answer,
