How can my WRT54GS/WPA & DWL-G730AP/WEP work together ri

    hey guys- i'm attempting to get my LINKSYS WRT54GS (v1.0) [WPA security] to work with a cheap DLINK DWL-G730AP [WEP Security].

    My main network has always been with the WRT54GS, but I recentlly got the DWL-G730AP to run WEP security for my new NINTENDO DS (which only allows WEP security authentication).

    Right now, I have them linked together like this:

    WRT54GS LAN port ---> G730AP WAN (the only port it has)

    They are setup this way:

    ---------------------------
    [ Cable/DSL ROUTER ]
    ---------------------------
    |
    |
    [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[ WAN ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]] port
    [ WRT54GS: regular mode ]
    [ IP: 192.168.1.49 ]
    [ DHCP: 192.168.1.100-150 ]
    [ SSID = bert ]
    [ Channel = 11 ]
    [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[ LAN ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]] port
    |
    |
    |
    [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[ WAN ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]] port
    [ G730AP: AP mode ]
    [ IP: 192.168.1.48 ]
    [ Subnet: 255.255.255.0 ]
    [ Gateway: 192.168.1.49 ]
    [ DNS: some internet dns server ]
    [ DHCP: 192.168.1.200-225 ]
    [ SSID = ernie ]
    [ Channel = 6 ]
    ---------------------------------------------


    Currently, I can connect to both networks in their own appropriate ways (WRT54GS via WPA, and G730AP via WEP).

    The only thing is, when i have G730AP connected, all IP addresses are from the 200-225 range, even for my computer that is wire-plugged into the main WRT54GS.

    How do I keep my main network behind the WPA/WRT54GS [bert] segment, and WEP-enabled devices to stay on the WEP/G730AP [ernie] segment?

    Hmm interesting. This shoulm't be happening. One thing that i would do is set the ernie/dlink router to a different subnet.

    Use, say:

    wrt:

    IP-192.168.1.1
    gateway-192.168.1.1
    dhcp-192.168.1.100-199
    Subnetmask-255.255.255.0

    dlink:

    IP-192.168.0.1
    gateway-192.168.0.1
    dhcp-192.168.0.100-199
    subnetmask-255.255.255.0

    hey k4g - good idea, and i've considered it

    but wouldn't that prevent my DS (on the ernie subnet network) from getting to the Internet for the nintendo connection?
