    I have a speedtouch 566 ADSL2/Router and a WRT54GS wireless router. Now the problem is that I have my wired clients connected to the Speedtouch and I use the WRT54GS for my wireless clients. 4 wired and 2 wireless.

    Now I want to be able to only have one network and not two. My main problems are the wireless PDA that can't access the shared folders on the wired net and my wireless DVD/Divx player that can find the server on one of the wired clients.

    What options do I have? I am not using ADSL2 just normal ADSL. But I might use it in the future. Should I connect all of my clients to the WRT54GS? Should I make the WRT54GS my main ADSL modem?

    I tried doing some searches but I couldn't find what I was looking for.

    I hope somebody can help me!! :confused: :confused: :confused:

    all you need to do is disable the DHCP on the WRT54GS and specify its internal IP address to something within the valid range of the Speedtouch. Then just make sure your not using the internet/WAN port on the router, just use the 4 switched ports
