I thought I was pretty computer savvy. Then I tried to enter the world of networking, and now I feel like idiot. But one must press on. SO: My current setup is dsl modem run into a Dlink wired router on the 2nd floor with two computers wired to it. One long ethernet cable run to a switch on the first floor, which connects two more computers. Just acquired a new laptop (Vista) with wireless card that will be used on the first floor. I bought a WRT54G, thinking I would connect it to the switch, thus giving better wireless coverage to the first floor by being closer than if it replaced the Dlink router on the 2nd floor. Having no success doing this, I went to the internet to find the answer. Well, I seem to have found many, and I'm trying to figure out which to use. It seems like a good solution would be to plug the run from the dlink into a lan port on the WRT54g. I get the idea turning off of DHCP and assigning a static ip to the WRT54G. But how do I do that configuration? Go through the Dlink's config panel? Do I need to plug the laptop into the WRT54g to configure it for wireless? Is the Linksys Easy Advisor of any use in this? What computer should I run it on? Or should I just bag the Dlink, replace it with the WRT54G, and find some way to boost the signal to the first floor? Thanks.
