I recently bought a refurbished linksys wrt160n-rm from amazon for $31. I ordered it before getting DD-WRT working on my trendnet router. I didn’t want to hassle with returning it, so I decided to turn it into a wireless bridge, something I wanted to do for a while. With the refurbished router, I had to insert the refurbished instructions cd in order to get the router working. Once the linksys firmware is on, I opted to get dd-wrt working on it. I followed the instructions here, but couldn’t get things working because the 30-30-30 reset made the router not work; I had to unplug and plug the power back in to get an ip again. Also, the firmware on the page at the time did not work when i tried to upgrade without the 30-30-30 reset. Googled a bit, and postings here mentioned that they got dd-wrt working without the 30-30-30 reset and with an earlier build. I did so, and got dd-wrt working. Note that I also checked this page to confirm that the other build was required first. Once this version was installed, I upgraded to this version. To get it as a wireless bridge, I followed the instructions here. Voila, I now have the wireless bridge in my brother’s room with his computer and our network printer connected. Things are sweet! In the future, I would probably have a router in the living room connected via a network cable to act as another hotspot for my wireless network or something.
