Getting an external DHCP server to work with the AP

    Heh, first post here.

    I got my WRT54GS last night and I started fiddling around with it. Later on, I installed the latest beta version of DD-WRT and began to ponder how my network would be set up with this AP. Up until now, I've used the following setup:

    Modem > Linux router (Clarkconnect with firewall and DHCP) > Switch > Clients

    With this AP, I want the following setup: [hr:e69fb0793d][​IMG][hr:e69fb0793d]

    The AP won't have a DHCP server, instead it will use the linux router to give IPs dynamically to the clients on the WRT54GS. Can it be achieved? If so, how do I set it up? The AP is connected to the switch via the WAN port.

    Thanks in advance

    Disable DHCP on the wrt54gs by logging on to
    Connect a wire from switch to ports 1-4 on router.
    I assume the linux server is plugged in to the switch.
