    I am at a total loss and know it is an easy fix that I just can't think of.. but I am trying to do the following:

    Internet cable box ---- E2500 ----- WRT54gs

    The E2500 has an GW IP of SM and setup as the DHCP server for the network

    The WRT54GS is has a net cable from port 2 of the E2500 p lugged into its Internet port.

    Traffic is not pasing from the GS to the E2500. I am sure it is most likely a routing table issue, but have no idea what to put in. I have played with turning off dhcp, changing IP's.. I am now back at factory defaults.

    Can anyone help me?

    Figured out the fix.

    Set the WRT to router mode (tried that before)
    Had to plug in the incoming cable into one of the net ports NOT the internet port on the back of it
    Had to reserve and IP on the E2500 for the WRT
