    is it possible to connect a befsx41 firewall router to a WRT54G wireless router and if so, what's the connection schematic?

    i want to add the firewall to our small office network and i am having trouble seeing the web throught the firewall router.

    i can see the web through the firewall (alone).

    i see the web fine through the wireless router (alone).

    but not when i try to pass from the firewall through the wireless...

    thanks...

    how are you trying to connect them? WDS?
    otherwise you could really just connect any routers together and get them to work with little effort.

    How to connect two routers

    yes It is possible to connect befsx41 to WRT54G router.Both the linksys routers have same Ip address 192.168.1.1.so you need to change the Ip address of WRT54G router to 192.168.1.2.connect any one of your pc to the WRT54G Lan port and enter into the router setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 in I.E ,and type the pass word 'admin', and in the basic setup disable DHCP server,and if you want change the wireless settings on the router and finally in the basic setup page change the local Ip address to 192.168.1.2, and save settings. Now connect a cable from port no 4 of befsx41 to port no 4 of WRT54G router thats it.do a power cycle once,means after doing all the physical connections shut down every thing ,and first turn on the modem-then first router-then second router.give 30 seconds gap while turning on each device.That's it.

    for further information go to www.linksys.com/kb and in easy answers type "cascading routers" you can get solution for that one (or) reffer the Answer ID 358 .
