    I have an existing network. I need to add my WRT54G to allow wireless access to the network. I can connect it up and pull an IP for the subnet and get out to the Internet but I cannot access any other PC's on the subnet. I've tried connecting the WRT54G through a lan connection versus the wan connection. I turned off DHCP on the WRT54G which gives me an IP off the proper subnet. Why can I not ping or browse the PC's that are on the switch and not on the wireless connection?

    what are you using as DHCP, Gateway, DNS etc in front of the WRT54G?

    This is in a business enviroment. There is a DHCP server dishing out a range of addresses and DNS. The server is also the gateway for this subnet. I have a range of about 20 IP addresses. I have a linksys switch that I have several PC's connected to. Is there no way to extend the capabilities of the switch and make some of the connections wireless? Thanks for any feedback.
