    routing question old wl500g

    Hi all,

    I have an old wl500g running oleg's firmware. I want to use it to extend the range of my current main router to get a connection in an old garage on the back of our land where the main router does not have wifi reach

    This is my plan:
    main home
    [fiber-internet]<--->[netgear router]<---100m cable to garage--->
    -->[wan port of wl-500g]<-->[wireless to ipad]

    If I connect a laptop to the long cable I get a nice DHCP response and a stable 100 mbit connection, fixed IP works as well.

    my plan was to run the wl500g in home router mode as well but with a different SSID that the main home router.

    I configured the wl500g as follows:

    GW: (this is the wan port on the netgear)
    DNS: my ISP dns

    LAN: DHCP between and
    router lan ip :

    I can connect to the wl500g both wireless and wired, and I can browse to the configuration page on
    However, I cannot connect to the internet through the netgear nor can I reach the server attached to the netgear on
    If I login on the wl500g with telnet I CAN connect to the server
    So conclusion, routing is going wrong on the wl500g.

    How should I configure the IP route section (or something else on the WL500g to get a connection through to the outside world)
    If you have other suggestion, thats fine as well of course.

    Set the wl500g to AP mode or
    1) set off the DHCP server on the wl500g
    2) Connect the long cable to one of the LAN ports of the wl500g
