Problem linking 2 routers

    In the past I used a Linksys 54GL router (with dd-wrt) connected to an Alcatel ADSL modem.
    Router adress /

    Modem adress /

    Everything worked fine using DHCP server with dynamic IP adresses on PC's in LAN.

    Now i have received a new combined modem/router from my ISP.
    I have configured the stuff like this:

    I am not using wireless at the moment.

    Modem/router A (Thomson 780 wireless) connected to ADSL
    Router A adress: (LAN side) /

    Connected the Linksys router (B) to this with the gateway cable on port 1 of router A.

    All my PC's still on the old router with same settings and IP adress.

    Set the internet connection on the Linksys router to:

    Static IP:
    Filled in gateway to / same subnet

    rest was filled in automatically: DNS adresses and an internet adress


    internet works OK
    LAN file sharing etc disappeared, no ping, no nothing.

    Probably a clash of IP adresses but I dont know what to do.
    I want to keep using the Linksys router because of download issues (torrents).

    Does anyone have a clue how to fix this? (before I go changing all kinds of adresses on wild guesses).

    You need to change the ip range of either one of your routers. You could break it up into smaller subnets but that can get confusing for most. So change the ip of one to something other then 192.168.1.x and you should be good to go.
