Hi, I have spent an afternoon setting up a WRK54G (not WRT) router and have come across a very strange networking problem. I am using the router to setup a small network in the office off one of the LAN points. I connectected the router up and set it up with a static IP address and gateway for the company lan. Once done the internet connectivity using a pc connected to the router via cable was very slow (<Office LAN socket <> WRK54G <> PC). I replaced the router with a switch (simple 4 port netgear switch) just to get through the day and set my PC back up to the static IP. Later that day I tried to set up the router again and forgot to remove the switch so the setup was (Office LAN socket <> switch <> WRK54G <> PC). To muy surprise the whole thing worked. Whe cleaning up the cables I noticed the switch was still in the chain so I removed it and the same probem of slow speed and packet loss came back. Any ideas???? Can the WRK54G only take an internet connection from cable or DSL modem? Should there be a problem due to it conecting to a LAN?
