WRT54g as access point.

    To have the WRT54G behave as access point is it enough to disable the DHCP server on it? Let me elaborate.
    I have a ADSL router at 10.0.0.1 with a DHCP server on it. At the moment I have the Linksys connected to it, and all computers connected to the Linksys at the 192.168.1.x range. The double NAT seems excessive, and I want my ADSL to assign IP. I just want to use the 10.0.0.x range.
    In case I just have to disable DHCP,
    1: what do I enter in "Local IP address" in network setup? 10.0.0.2?
    2: can I just ignore the internet setup?
    3: i have to connect the asdl router to the lan port on the linksys, not the wan port like i do now?
    *somewhat bewildered* :)

    Thanks for the reply, but those all refer to a dsl modem, and i have a dsl router. But looking around a bit more I found some information on connecting the wireless router to a wired router here. Looks like I was on the right track in my first post. I'll get back to you on how it turns out :)

    btw you will need to put the WRT54G into router mode and not gateway.

    I guess your connecting the WRT54G to the ADSL router via it's WAN port, if you just want to use it as an access point/hub just connect one of it's LAN ports to a LAN port on the ADSL router.

    Yeah, I did that change at the same time as I disabled the DHCP.
