DHCP Problems?

    Hi there.

    I recently bought myself a Linksys WRT54G. Nice router except for the fact it doesn't have the ability of using Static DHCP. So after searching the internet I found out that Sveasoft firmware should do the trick. I managed to get the latest Talisman firmware and it seemed to work fine. Then I noticed a little problem. With my router at it's default settings and at IP 192.168.1.1 the DHCP works like a charm. But... whenever I change the router IP to 192.168.0.1 it suddenly refuses to give my PC an IP. I changed the routers IP back to 192.168.1.1 and guess what? It all works. Why can't I get DHCP to work on the 192.168.0.x range? Is the router blocking that range in some way? The problem exists both with Static and non-Static DHCP. Every other setting is left by it's default. I also tried Alchemy firmware 1.0 but it has the same result. Any help on this one?

    You are using static IP Addresses and the DHCP server on the WRT54G is on? Is the range of IP Addresses that the DHCP server in same 192.168.0.X range of the local address of the WRT54G? It should be or then they are on a different sub-net. When you are setting the NICs static address did you change the gateway address to 192.168.0.1?

    Yes, I use the DHCP server in "Static-mode" so that it assigns the same IP to every device every time. This works great because I use port-forwarding. I could manually assign each different PC an IP but for me, using DHCP is easier. Then ofcoarse the DHCP range is the same than the local adress of the WRT54G. If it wasn't then I couldn't connect to the router at all, because of the different net. So to make things clear: I didn't set the NIC adress myself. I let the router assing the same address every time. The gateway is assigned by DHCP as well.
