Help on configuring router

    Hi everyone,

    I just recently bought a Linksys WRT54G Wireless broadband router to allow wireless lan on my network.

    Originally, I have a Linux Firewall with two nics, one as a public interface (where my DSL line connected), and the other as private interface (where my LAN switch is connected). It then distributes the internet connection to the workstations connected on the switch.

    Now, i want the linksys router to reside between the firewall and the LAN Switch, and take care of the internet sharing, so that my wireless users can also connect to the internet.

    Is this possible? how do i make it work? below is a sample diagram of my plan, but i cant get it running:

    V (fw public ip)
    linux firewall
    | (fw private ip)
    v (Linksys external IP)
    Linksys WRT54G --------------------> Wireless Workstations (192.168.1.x)
    | (linksys internal IP)
    Workstations (192.168.1.x)

    thanks and regards!
