Hello folks I'm completely new to the world of wireless etc etc so bear with me, let describe the current setup: Fedora Server performing IP Masquerading ISP Modem => Eth0 Eth1 (Static IP of 192.168.0.103, my gateway out) => IBM Hub (24 ethernet port hub yeah i know it's overkill but it's fun) XP Box on => IBM Hub Static IP 192.168.0.3 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.0.103 Vonage Phone => IBM Hub Static IP 192.168.0.4 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.0.103 Vista Laptop in the living room => Want to connect wireless Static IP on wireless card: 192.168.0.11 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway 192.168.0.10 (the WRT) Linksys WRT54GL Flashed with 1.25 Tomato Internet Port => IBM Hub Disabled WAN/Internet setting LAN Settings => IP 192.168.0.10 Subnet 255.255.255.0 (all above connections on the same subnet) Default Gateway => 192.168.0.103 Static DNS (gave it the same as my other cards) 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 DHCP Server Disabled Wireless Enable Wireless yes Wireless Mode: Access Point G only SSID Cry0WAP Broadcast yes and on channel 10 Security disabled till i can figure out this headache of mine So here's the deal, with the above in place the minute i apply the settings (taking me off 192.168.1.1) my Linux box and XP box loose all sight of the router, cannot get a ping off on 192.168.0.10 and obviously 192.168.1.1 as that just got junked in place of the new IP. However, the Vista laptop sees the new wireless connection and connects just fine, i can open IE and pull up 192.168.0.10 and view/modify all tomato settings in place. Internet connection however does not exist and i cannot ping any the IP to the XP box or Fedora box. If i dare to set anything into WAN/Internet to eg. static ip, i get booted altogether and can't see the router from the laptop anymore nor either the XP / Fedora box. I'm missing something either very easy and simple...i'll facepalm for sure or i've got to go deeper into more advanced settings. Am i out to lunch here? Is this possible to get working? What did i miss? Help is much appreciated =) As a bit of additional info...i used to use a WET54G Connected to the hub in the same fashion setting static blah blah blah...long story short thing lasts 3 hrs before i have to flash the firmware on it again then re-establish all the settings and i'm on RMA #3 with linksys. The setup i'm trying now was a recomendation of a friend. Hopefully as stated above i'm not out to lunch on what i'm tying to acccmplish here.
