    Hello, I hope someone can help me.

    I have an internet connection from my university. Whem I am direcly connected to my cable modem, I can access windows shares on the university network.
    A fewweeks ago I've bought an wrt54g to give my housemates access to the internet. But behind the router I can't access the windows shares on the university network (which is logical).
    I am a bit tired of switching the cable from the router to the computer and back to have access to the university network, so I was wondering if there is an possibility to connect to the windows shares on the university network from behind my router?

    Any help would be appreaciated!

    Does your IP change when it is connected to the router vs the when connected straight to the university network. i.e. univ network gives out a 10.xx.xx.xx number and the router is giving you 192.168.x.x numbers... If so.. try changing the router settings so that you get your ip from the university and not the local 54g...

    The IP ranges from my university and my internal network are different. What you suppose is not possible becouse I only have one static IP.
    If I had more i could use a switch and an AP, but that's no option.

    Hmm. Not sure I know how to help you on this one.. The thing that I can think of.. is the loopback issue..

    If your firmware is the stock linksys firmware (it's been a while since I used it, so...) Try using HyperWRT or Sveasoft Satori.. I know that Satori has an option to turn off the loopback and I am pretty sure HyperWRT does too.

    If you don't get a response from a more knowledgable person, try reposting your question. :)

    what os are u running

    if it is windows xp sp2 it could be a protocol problem.

    go to your network properties if you have windows netowrk monitoring there or microsoft tcp/ip (dont confuse "internet protocol (tcp/ip)" with this) there uncheck them

    did you disable the firewall on the router and enable vpn passthrough?
    you may need to just map network drives with an appropriate ip addr
    if im off base then im sorry but it sounds like it would work.
