    I have a WRT54G that I want to use as an AP because I already have 'n proxy server on my network

    When I use the WRT as a DHCP server I can't set the Gateway and DNS that the clients should get, instead I get the following
    It gives the clients the IP of the WRT54G as the gateway
    It should be because that's my real gateway

    The clients can't connect to the internet with this settings
    If I conf. the Ip's manuel everything works fine because I use as the gateway

    Can someone help?

    It's been a while since I've seen the official Linksys admin pages, but if you disable the internet connection and set the WRT's network settings to coincide with your network (IP, DNS, gateway) I'm pretty sure it'll dish out the correct settings to your clients.

    You can also do this with the alternative firmware that's out there (DD-WRT, Sveasoft, etc)
