    Hello Everyone,

    I'm sure I will sound like to you guys like a redneck but I'm having problem setting up my home network.
    Before I start I would like to say that I have a few knowledge in network and thsi is why I'm challenged.
    My Boo ask me to install at home a Firewall "Snapgear SME575" in order to create a VPN.
    Before that I had only a router Linksys WRT54G connected to my cable modem Ambitt for my internet access as well as my VoIP phone.
    I have been able so far to have my Snapgear working alone or my linsys alone but never both together.
    is there anyone that you help me out. As I said there a few concept I don't know and this mioght be a little thing to handlke for experts like you guys.

    Thank you,

    It appears the that SME575 only has 1 LAN port correct?

    1. Connect your Snapgear router to cable modem and configure as request by your boss.

    2. Run a cable from the LAN port on your Snapgear to a LAN port on the WRT.

    3. Disable the DHCP server on your WRT.

    4. Connect your computers to the WRT as you normally would.

    Good luck.
