    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 don't using ICS but I have heard it requires it be on a specfic ip range or it won't work, you may want to check what ip the computer has when it's in ad-hoc and what ip it gets from dhcp and then make them the same...
    or statically asign the ip on that pc and put the router in the same subnet or turn off DHCP and ignore the router completely

    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.
