  1. I was looking for some answers to a few questions before I buy the hardware to a bridge I want to setup.

    The setup I want to use is 2 WRT54GL using DD-WRT firmware setup in bridge mode.

    I am looking to bridge these routers from about <400 feet away.

    My main question is, since the WRT54GL has 2 antennas, can one antenna be setup to receive and the other setup to transmit. If so, I should be able to replace one of the omni-directional(transmit) antenna with a directional antenna.

    From anyone with bridging experience, will this setup work? Please note that these are simply bridged routers and don't need to serve any wireless
    clients.

    Thanks for any replies ahead of time. :)
