Linksys behind Zyxel running subnet

    This problem is really hard for me to describe well but I'll give it a try:

    My current setup

    ISP providing 6 ip's in a subnet --> Zyxel running the subnet --> Old Firewall --> PC Network running with static ip's

    IP RANGE (6 static): - 207
    200 (Net)
    207 (Broadcast)
    201 (Router)

    My most wanted setup:
    ISP providing 6 ip's in a subnet --> Zyxel running the subnet --> Linksys WRT54G (firmware Linksys own version: v3.03.1) configed with DHCP and Firewall --> PC Network running with dynamic ip's

    Well, now the 1$ questions:
    How to accomplish this?
    Which 3party firmware would you recommend (if any is compatible with the version of WRT54G)?

    I have so far figured out that the Zyxels routers ip should be entered as the gateway of the linksys. But where (Auto-DHCP, Static IP, Advanced Routing ??) I do not have any idea.

    Any help / hints etc. would be highly appreciated !!

    give the zytel an ip statically. i only use sveasoft satori so withthat i would,

    plug the wanport into the zytel and give the wrt a static ip.

    then run the dhcp server on the wrt and it will just serv itself as teh gateway.. all traffic from the internal network will then go to the zytel and out into the internet.
    assuming that you can wire into the zytel. you didnt mention what model zytel and the capabilities of this item so i am not sure.

    i run a winXP PC as the default gateway and then the wrt hooks up to it via the wan port. the windows pc gives it a dhcp address and gateway.

    then the wrt gives out itself to everyone else and it all works.
