I have a Verizon wifi connection thru two different phones that I want to be able to share with my current wired/wireless network.  I have a Linksys WRT54G that i have upgraded to DD-WRT firmware that I want to wireless;y connect to my phone, then use ethernet to connect it to a Linksys EA2700 that connects all of my existing wired/wireless devices in the house.  

I have been using a local wireless ISP that I have had to drop due to ongoing problems with the connection ( i have had 1-2 hours of connection a day at best for the last month, and they refuse to do anything to fix it.)

I added the wifi hotspot to my phones, and can access it from the wireless devices, but I have several wired only devices that must have internet access.  I think DD-WRT can do this, i;m just not sure how to configure it.

 

This is what I picture:

 

Internet -> Verizon Phone w/ Hotspot <- Wireless-> DD-WRT <-Wired -> Linksys EA270 <- Wired & Wireless -> rest of home network

Ok, Here's an update.  I now have the WRT54G connected to the hotspot on the phone, but I can't seem to get it and the EA2700 configured to share that connection to the local wired & wireless network.  It seems to be one step forward and two steps back.
