    I have a Linksys wireless-G broadband router WRT54G. I am trying to
    connect it to a wireless network at local library. My laptop (built-in
    wireless) connects fine to this network, however I am not able to
    connect through the Linksys router. Using the configuration interface,
    I tried the setting mode Mixed, B-only, G-only, using various channels
    and nothing seems to work. Firstly, why i have to set the channel (my
    laptop does not require me to specify any channel, it seems to be
    automatic). Secondly, the configuration interface for Linksys router
    does not have any screen to show available networks (my laptop has a
    utility that shows what wireless networks and their names ara available
    for the current location).

    Hi
    You can not connect a Wireless Router to another Wireless source unless it
    is WDS Wireless Router.
    The Linksys WRT54G is not WDS so it can be connected to another source only
    through Cable.
