I just got a linksys wireless g wrt 54 g router and the linksys wireless g usb adapter.I attatched the usb adapter to my desktop and my hp laptop has wirless g built in.I installed the stuff and configured the router.Now since my DSL Modem is not either net but is usb i cannot connect it to the router.So i connect the dsl modem to my desktop and enable inter connection sharing. Now when i enable the ad hoc mode i am able to connect my laptop and my desktop on a wireless network and share internet.But as soon as the router comes into the picutre and i go into the infrastructure mode i am not able to share the internet anymore.I want to use my router as of now as an access point to increase the range of the network but somehow i am not able to share internet in infrastructure mode.I am totally lost here.Need some expert help for sure. i was given the suggestion to turn off dhcp and assign an ip address.Now i dont want to use the router for routing purpose but i want to use it as basically an access point to improve the range of my network.Currently i am able to connect the desktop with the centrino laptop in ad hoc mode and share internet but the range is limited.So perhaps if i have the router strategically placed i can have a better range and connect thru infra. mode. As far as disabling dhcp is concerned i went into the admin settings of the router and did it.Now ehrer and what and how do i assign the ip.
