    Buffalo WHR-G54 RIP - new model needed!

    It seems my beloved WHR-G54 (and the DD-WRT version) are no longer available :crying: :sobbing: :verysad:

    I've used these very sucessfully to power classrooms of 15 laptops and I need a replacement equivalent.

    Has anyone bought such a item recently and has been happy with it to run a class of 15 laptops.

    We've a bought a few of these buffalo ones - Buffalo WLI-TX4-G54HP Turbo G High Power Wireless.. | Ebuyer.com

    Seem pretty solid and works well with DD-WRT

    I think most access points have the option of being used as a wireless client. This one just has the added benefit of having a 4 port ethernet switch built in.

    It works fine as a normal access point. I'm thinking of using a few of them with WDS using the DD-WRT firmware.

    @Ashm
    Brilliant info

    Just powered one up downloaded the DD-WRT firmware - ran theTFTP prog and it was flashed in 2 mins.

    Now works as a normal AP (instead of the basic wireless bridge mode it comes in)

    Mind you - good job it worked as I've bought 7 of them!

    Ta again (and thanks to Joe/Mark at CPLTD )

    regards

    Simon
