    I want to connect a wrt54gl as a router after a dlink614+ router to create a subnet. I currently have a linux machine acting as a router, and that works just fine. The wrt is supposed to replace my noisy box. But when i try to connect my wrt i can not get any connection. I have tried to connect my wrt after my linux box just to vertify if i have a hardware problem or a network problem. And it is clearly the last... I also tried to connect my pc to the lan4 port of the wrt and the linux-router to the lan1 port while leaving the wan port empty. This made it possible to ping my linux-router, but internet acsess is a no go. seems like the wrt routes all internet requests to the wan port....

    Do i need to use a 3rd party firmware or am i doing someting terrible wrong here??

    You have to disable the DHCP server on the WRT54G. If the local address of the dlink is change the local address pf the WRT54GL to another address on the subnet that will not conflict with the addresses that the DHCP server on the dlink is issuing. change the WRT54GL from a gateway to a router and save the settings. Attach one of the LAN ports of the WRT54GL to one of the LAN prots of the dlink and power cycle the WRT54GL. The WRT54GL should act as a wireless access point a a wired hub.
