    All i'm trying to do is to get my WRT54G to let my desktop have a static IP address. I still want it to act as a DHCP server, but i can't seem to get it to let my desktop access the internet when i manually assign it an IP address in windows. Am I missing a step? I can't seem to find anything in the router's setup that affects that...

    When you set a static IP Address, you have to enter the IP Addresses of the DNS servers that your ISP uses for URL (i.e. Universal Resource Locator) resolution to an IP Address. Copy the DNS addresses from the router status page and enter them in in the TCPIP setting of you network connection along with the local address of your Router as the Gateway Address and use a subnet mask of That should you allow to access the Internet. :thumbup:

    yeah, i figured out my problem. i wasn't assigning a gateway for the computer. typed in my router's local address, and it's working like a charm.
