I have an Arduino Mega collecting some sensor data in my attic. The mega has a standard Ethernet Shield attached. I can connect to the Arduino running the WebServer example (with modified IP & MAC addresses) by hard-wiring the Ethernet shield and a laptop both to a Linksys WRT54G router. No problem there. Now, I want to enable wireless access to the Arduino. I am taking for granted that the router can be configured to act as a "wifi adapter" for the Arduino but I can't figure out how to do it. Nothing I do seems to allow browsers on the wireless LAN to "see" the Arduino.
The router is running Tomato (same as my home wireless LAN), with the same WPA-personal/AES encryption & SSID. The home router (call it #1) is at 188.8.131.52 and the router connected to the Arduino (#2) is at 184.108.40.206.
Tomato offers the following options for wireless connectivity: Access point Access Point + WDS Wireless client Wireless ethernet bridge WDS
I have tried all of them (adding the MAC address of Router #1 as needed) but no joy. Maybe it's not even possible to use a router in this way? I could use a suggestion!
Best regards, MRO
