    Hello all,

    I have a problem with my network.
    I have a wag54g working okay (downstairs + Internet etc) and I want my wrt54g at second floor also working with internet and Ip.
    I connect the two with a ethernet cable port 1 (wag54g) to port 2 (wrt54g)not internet port.
    I can't get a internet connection with the wrt54g and have no ping to the wrt54g. I can still internet with the wag54g.
    The wag54 is static and the wrt54g is static
    Can somebody help me out?

    Regards Cas.

    Why don't you connect the WAG54G (LAN Port) to the WAN port of the WRT54G. I have the same constellation but in the other way around. WAG upstairs (Internet access) in the second floor and WRT54G 1st floor. Both configured as DHCP server. If you wish you could use static IP for the connection between WAG and WRT. If you still have problems just reply then we can check settings in detail.

    Hi All,

    I solved it with help from supplier and linksys.

    I connected with lan ports.
    On the wrt54g port 4 (best).
    Resetting the wrt54g was very important.
    The wrt54g get ip the wag54g
    both static no dhcp on.
    All my clients are static.
    No trying to get the wireless and wireless clients working.

    i would imagine that you could now turn on the dhcp server of the router that is connected to the internet and that would simplify your installation.

    i use windows routing and remote access to share my dialup line.
    i have the windows dhcp server running. then i have a wrt54g connected to a switch via the wan port. all my wired clients are connected to this switch.
    and all my wireless clients go through the wrt. the windows dhcp server grants them ip's and internet access.

    it is magic i guess.
