    I am planning to setup wireless networking like this:

    internet connection
        DSL Modem
        DSL Router (SMC7004VBR)
            |(Subnet #1)
            |	                 )) Clients (Subnet #2)
         WRT54G/GS )))) )))) 
        /  ||  \	              )))) )))) WAP/WRT  ))))  Clients (Subnet #2)
       /   ||   \                                   |
        Clients                                  |
      (Subnet #2)                       Switch
                                                  / || \
                                                 /  ||  \
                                           (subnet #2)
    The Connection between WRT54G/GS and WAP/WRT is only needed as a wirless cable

    So I have two questions:
    1. does it make sense to use a different Subnet between DSL-Router and internal?
    or is it a better idea to remove the barricade complete? and use the WRT?
    2. wich is the better choice for wirelss cable? WAP or WRT?

    thanks for your help!

    Well usually you would subnet a network for main security purposes(in a business) so that you wouldn't want certain clients to access specific servers or terminals that have very important data/info. in your network.

    Im learning the basics of subnetting (the basics of it is more than what you imagine) which for new users will make them confused about everything, instead of teaching you a whole curriculum on it you'd rather go to

    this website doesn't show you step by step, but also different chapters and specific subnetting links you can select (ONLY VIDEOS).

    But if you'd prefer reading articles go to this site:

    ^you might want to copy&paste this information. And because subnetting networks is hard work maybe that's why your having such an issue.

    other than that, if it's not about subnetting which looks to me it is because of your network plan, then you should give more information about this issue so I can have a better understanding of your network problem and so that others can assist you with it as well.
