    Hello everyone,

    I have a Linksys WRT54G (v4 - Firmware Version : v4.20.6) that i would like to use as an AP to expand my wireless network.

    I've seen many links on how to do this on this site, but whenever i go to one i keep getting 404 errors :(, so i greatly apologize on re-asking the same question over and over.

    ^That is what the "basic setup" screen of my Linksys router looks like.

    As you can see I disabled DHCP.

    Also I gave the WRT54G the same SSID/WEP key as the main router.

    The main router is on channel 6 and the linksys is on channel 1.

    The internet is going into a switch and the linksys is connected into the switch as well using one of the four ports, not the WAN port.

    When i move my notebook next to the linksys it connects to it, but it IP, Subnet, and Gateway it assigns to the notebook are totally wrong (see below). And WinXP also detects it as "limited or no connectivity".

    ipconfig reads:
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Autoconfiguration IP Address. . . : 169.254.154.148
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance,
    rudy
