    Folks,

    My "main" router is a linksys wrt54g -- v5, sadly, so not much I can do to it.

    It is set to 192.168.1.1, with DHCP at 192.168.1.100+ (normal defaults)

    I have a second, with dd-wrt installed. Right now, it is configured with the wireless mode set to "client". I've set it's address to 192.168.5.1. The machines -- two of them at the moment -- are connected to it via wired connections. They are getting assigned 192.168.5.x addresses and they can connect out just fine. However, I want these machines to exist on the same network as the rest of the computers in my house, each with a 192.168.1.x address.

    How would I configure this?

    thanks!

    Why did you choose a different subnet?

    Why did you not set the second router to have a local address of 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.3 or 192.168.1.X where X is not 1 or 100-255. Your DHCP server on your second router could be issuing address in the 192.168.1.Y where Y is not = X and less than 99.

    To get what you want you'll need to run the v23 beta version of DD-WRT and use "Client Bridge" mode.

    On the Setup page Disable the WAN/Internet interface, set the LAN IP address to something like 192.168.1.2 and disable the DHCP server.
