Need Help With WRT54GS v7

    Hello, I need some help in configuring my WRT54GS as a wireless access point. Here is my setup:

    ROUTER1 ***************** ROUTER2
    WIRELESS1 ***************** WIRELESS2
    WRT350N ***************** WRT54GS *****************
    DHCP=YES ***************** DHCP=NO
    WAN port connects to cable modem

    *ROUTER1 connects to ROUTER2 via port 1 on each router.
    *ROUTER2 is configured as a router in Advanced Routing.

    ROUTER2 works fine as a wired switch. I'm trying to enable the wireless on it because ROUTER1 is in the basement and I want to expand the wireless coverage to the upstairs. When I connect to WIRELESS2 from my laptop, I can get to the web config pages for both ROUTER1 and ROUTER2 but I cannot reach the Internet. I get correct DHCP lease info from ROUTER1, including the correct DNS servers for my ISP, but I cannot ping anything beyond ROUTER1.

    I think the problem is that ROUTER2 has only one routing table entry which is:
    Destination LAN IP:
    Subnet Mask:
    Interface: LAN & Wireless

    When I try to create a default route to, using, I get an error message that states that the Destination LAN IP is invalid.

    Does anyone know if there is a workaround to this? :confused:

    Router 2 should not be set as a router in advanced routing, you are only using it as an access point. If it has a NAT setting it should be off, otherwise it appears you have set everything correctly.
