Help for WRT54GS under another router

    Hi, everyone. I have a WRT54GS (actually a WRT54G - flashed with Thibor12 :D ) and I have it connected to another router, which is connected to the modem and handles all of the DHCP.
    I was wondering if there was a way to make the WRT54GS just let DHCP settings pass directly through to the wireless and wired clients.
    For example, my first router that I want to do DHCP assigns IP's like 192.168.0.xx, but the WRT54GS is automatically assigning IP's like 192.168.1.xxx. However, I want it to let the 192.168.0.xx DHCP assignments from the first router go on through.
    Is this even possible?
    Thanks in advance,
    -fobis

    set the router into WET mode and turn off the firewall, dhcp and wan interface

    Hey, Thibor, thanks for the response.
    But doesn't WEP just do this:
    I tried that and all that I noticed was that my wireless stopped working until i changed it back to Access Point.
    And also, which DHCP do I disable? The Internet Connection Type or the DHCP server?
    Thanks,

    if your main router isn't Wireless, just plug a cat5 cable into it's(wrt) lan port. disable the internet connection and lan dhcp server. also stay as Access Point
