Ok, I know this subject has been covered here on numerous occasions, but never has it been with my specs etc.....so I need a little help! I started out trying to forward ports so I could get greater DL speeds.....when that didnt work, i found out its because I am connected using the "Modem" my ISP gave me, ANDDD a Linksys WRT54G router for the computer downstairs' wireless connection. Now I found out the "Modem" is also a router, and you cant have 2 routers running on the same IP etc....NOW, anyone know where I can find a step by step guide or walkthrough for me to change the WRT54G from a router to a hub/switch/access point??? I've found a bunch here and there, but its always when people just want to use a second router to strengthen or expand their connection for wireless. I dont want that, so I dont know if the settings and changes are the same or what. Any help is GREATLY appreciated, as I'm about to just say *#&% it and just deal with DL at 20kb/s on a supposed 1Mb/s connection!!! Again, running a Siemens Speedstream 4200 "Modem", connected to a WRT54G router, connected to my computer, and using a Belkin USB Wireless hub downstairs for the other computer.
