As I was writing the post, I just KNEW someone would make a crack about
camping and electronics. LOL

Yes, I know the basics. I could do it for two raw Linux boxes, but the
facilities in DD-WRT seem a little lacking.

I don't see how to NAT from the wireless port in the G router (the one
with the antenna) to either the LAN or WAN ports. I also don't see how to
make the DD-WRT to be a true access point.
