    I've got a strange problem. I can not ping or telnet to my cisco DSL router from my wrt and it's clients, but I can use it as a gateway for the wrt without any problems

    I have a DSL connection with a cisco 677 as a router. My wrt54gs(running hyperWRT) is connected to the cisco and all wired and wireless connections are made through the wrt. The setup is as below:
    cisco ip:

    wrt ip(wan side connected to cisco end):
    wrt ip(lan side connected to clients):10.0.50


    The firewall is off on the wrt. If I take my PC and connect it directly to the cisco with a switch, then I can ping and telnet without any problems.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Telling us the correct IP address is kind of important for troubleshooting this problem. ;) The subnet masks are also important if you are trying to do any routing between the LAN & WAN interfaces of the WRT.

    I'll assume you meant and that you want to use the WRT as simply an Access Point since you've disabled the firewall.

    If this is the case then simply connect the cable from the cisco router to a LAN port on the WRT and leave the WAN port unused.

    You'll also need to make sure there's only one DHCP server running on your network. (It should probably be run from the Cisco router.)

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the help, I can access my router again and my clients now use the cisco dhcp again and the linksys as AP.
