    As the subject states. I have a BEFSR41 already in place running fine. I recently purchased a WRK54G that I would like to add in. I'm very computer literate, not so much so with networking in particular. I followed a walkthrough that I found on the LinkSys site, but to no avail. Anybody willing to give me a hand here? Not that it matters, but the BEFSR41 is running firmware 1.04.17 and the WRK54G is running the most recent on the LinkSys site. So um, yeah, need anymore info please ask.

    What are you trying to achieve by adding in the WRK54G? is it purely to access as a wireless access point?

    Basicly what I have going is as follows: Cable Modem ----> BEFSR41 ----> a:) Computer 1 b:) WRK54g ------> a:)Computer 2 b:)Computer 3 c:)Wireless PS2 Broadband adaptor..

    The main purpose(es, plural) is to get Computer 3 added in and to provide wireless access. I'm going to be getting a new laptop so I want to get all this set up before it gets here.

    I also want to mention that the BEFSR41 is in an upstairs office and the WRK54g will be going in the basement. I already have the cat5 pulled to the basement for the computer that is there, I just figure that that's where I'll be using the laptop the most so the wireless needs to go there.

    Anyhow, thanks for your help.
