Let me start by saying that I'm a novice to networking. I know enough to be dangerous (to myself, not others). I have been wracking my brain trying to read thru different threads in the hopes of figuring out how to set up my WRT54G v1.1 running Tomotao 1.07 as a second router upstairs in my SOHO. My first problem is trying to figure out which settings to switch on my WRT54G. My second problem is that even when I try to do the basic first steps (as I understand from other threads) of changing my WRT54G's local router IP is that I can't reconnect it to via to the new IP address I assign to it. This prevents me from any fiddling to even try other steps out [[I know this seems lame but did I forget to mention that I'm a networking newbie?!]] I'm getting my DSL through a 2WIRE Wireless Gateway (wireless router with modem) supplied by ATT. It is located in a very useful downstairs location. I am currently running a connection to my upstairs PC via a pair of Netgear XE102's (wall plugged ethernet bridge). Here is a breakdown of the network I am trying to set up: 1st Router (the 2WIRE) = ATT SBC Yahoo DSL -> 2WIRE (on IP 192.168.1.0, subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.254, and DHCP range 192.168.1.64-253) -> 1st XE102. 2nd Router (the WRT54G) = 2nd XE102 -> WRT54G (currently on IP 192.168.1.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway ? (not sure where to find this setting), and DHCP range 192.168.1.100-149) -> Upstairs PC. With the downstairs 2WIRE acting as the internet wired and wireless router for any work or fun connection needs, I would really, REALLY appreciate a step-by-step walkthru of how to configure settings on my WRT54G so that it can act as; (1) a wired bridge between the upstairs XE102 and my PC, and (2) a wired bridge between the upstairs XE102 and work laptops that wifey and I sometimes want to jack into, (3) a bridge for future media devices like Slingbox, and (4) a bridge for any ad-hoc wireless connects. Heck, I would even forego option (4) above [[setting up WRT54G as a wireless bridge]] and just settle for getting the thing to work as a wired bridge for options (1-3) above. FYI - I am able to get my upstairs PC connected to the 2WIRE via the XE102's so that part of the equation works. It's just that when I try to add the WRT54G into the equation, I can't bridge across it! I figure I am missing several key understandings and steps here. I would really appreciate any and all attention and assistance with this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
