So by now everyone knows that MBPs drop internet on certain routers, and etc etc etc... Okay before you get on my case about not searching, I actually spent quite a few hours at work ( I finished early ) looking for answers but found none. So here goes.: At home I have a crappy 2wire gateway supplied by att, my mac drops connection from it constantly, but not on other routers, and its been about 6 months and I've had it. At first I wanted to use one of my 2 routers to create a repeater but after learning that it cuts bandwidth in half I scrapped that idea. the second idea i have is to create a wireless client bridge and then run an ethernet cable from that (it will be in my room upstairs, main router downstairs) to my WAP. Here's what i have: 1) WRT54G Version 5 Wireless G Broadband Router with 4 port switch 2) WRT54G2 Version 1 Wireless G Broadband Router So again basically install dd-wrt on the 54g and make it a wireless client bridge and then keep the 54g2 stock and connect it with a cable to the 54g and have it as a WAP. Now the 54g2 wouldn't broadcast internet. it would be for myself in the room only. I'm too stingy of an internet person to let my parents use it. I like raw internet. Quick questions, 1) is this possible? 2) i read somewhere that this keeps full bandwidth, is it true? or does it lose speed along the 2 wireless connections? 3) does anyone have a better idea? 4) i also thought about bringing it in to an apple store, playing dumb and saying it drops always, and then maybe have it exchanged, i have warranty still. good idea? but i dont really want to get some crap refurb so thats a no no imho. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! I would like to get this done tonight. This a temporary solution for myself, and possibly for others. PS I did bridge the 2wire gateway and made it a modem only and had the 54g2 as the router but that was slow. IDK why. not exactly a networking scientist here. THANKS A BUNCH!
