Help Configuring Network/Router

    Hi there,

    I'm a member of a network where I have two computers and my Linksys WRT54G router, all with static IP's issued by the network administrator. I have finally been able to set up access for both computers through the router where they can connect either wirelessly or by Ethernet, and there is no NAT in use from the router. However, I can't SSH from one of my boxes to the other, and I think it's because I somehow need to enable that port on the router (presumably it's being blocked). The problem is that my router seems to expect a subnet mask of 255.255.255.xxx, where xxx is one of those values from 0 to 255. But the actual subnet mask for the network is less restrictive, and so if I give the WRT54G its local IP address, etc..., I can't access the full address space I need to set rules for both of my boxes (since they are not within a 255.255.255.xxx mask of each other) - does that make sense? So, my question is, how else can I set this up? Do I need to install some third-party firmware on the Linksys, and if so, which package? I don't need any NAT, I just basically want my router to act as an access point for both of my computers, either wired or wirelessly, through a single physical connection to the rest of the network. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
