My base router is a Linksys BEFSR11 which connects to the Internet using a static IP address provided by the service provider. The DHCP server is disabled since Port Forwarding is enabled. I have about 6 web servers plus 2 ftp servers. All of this works perfectly over a wired Ethernet. Recently I added a Linksys WRT54G2. It is setup with an address of 192.168.1.2 since the base router uses 192.168.1.1. The WRT54G2 is connected to one of the 1-4 ports on an Ethernet switch to one of the 1-4 ports on the router. My laptop will connect wirelessly with the WRT54G2 and then connects perfectly to the web servers on my local net, but will not connect to the Internet using DHCP as directed by Linksys support or using the Static IP configuration used by the base computer. Maybe without a DHCP server enabled on the base router it is not possible to connect to the Internet, but it seems like there should be a way. Does someone know how to do this? It has been suggested that one should use Static IP with 192.168.1.1 as the Internet IP address and 192.168.1.2 as the Gateway address. This, however results in the error message that the LAN and WAN address are the same.
