Setting up DD-WRT as a repeater.
 
OK, So here is my dillema. I have 2 routers. I will call them Router1 and Router2. Simple Enough. Both are wireless. Router1 is connected to the internet and has WEP 64 security (haha security....right....). Router2 is a WRT54GS with DD-WRT loaded on it. This is the setup I would like. How could I do this?
Code:


                              INTERNET
                                  |
                              ROUTER1 (WEP 64)
                          ________|________
                      ___|___              |
                    |      |          ROUTER2
                    PC      PC        ___|___   
                                      |      |
                                      PC      PC

Yes, I have seen that. However, that does not account for ANY sort of security. It only allows for open networks. Is it impossible to use wep with it?
