    Hi all,
    I have set up two routers as follows :

    A Sagem F@st 3203 (Livebox) modem/router that is connected to the phone line and receives the ADSL feed from my ISP.
    The modem/router's IP address is
    The DHCP server is disabled.

    A WRT54GS (firmwave v1.05.3), connected to the Livebox via Ethernet.
    This router's IP address is (it is within the Livebox's IP range)
    Subnet mask setting is
    Gateway setting is
    The DHCP server is active, all PCs are connected to this router either by Ethernet or wireless and are provided IP adresses over DHCP.

    The LAN works fine and all PCs have Internet access. Yet, I cannot reach the Livebox's setup pages by typing it's IP address in a browser. This seems to make sense as the Livebox is outside the WRT's LAN (correct ?).

    So the question is : how do I make the Livebox's setup pages accessible from the PCs in my network ? I assume I have to adjust settings in the Advanced routing tab, on the WRT54GS, but I'm not quite sure how. Operating mode is Gateway. Whenever I switch to Router, Internet access is disabled.

    Thanks for your help on this one.
