    I'm trying to set up a router for a termporary wireless connection (1 day only) at a school for a group of teachers.

    Does anyone know if the WRT54G can be configured to simply "pass through" ip's from my network...in other words, I want users to have 10.1xx.xx.xx ip's instead of 192.168.x.x. If the short answer is no that's ok...it will save me time from looking.

    At this point, I can get it to allow users to use a proxy server but not access home folders. Maybe It can be done without the 10.1xx.x.x ip's. If anyone knows a way please let me know.

    the easy way is to configure its dhcp for the range you want (or disable it if theres already a dhcp server on the network), and plug the local network connection into one of the router's switch ports, NOT the wan port. this will make it act as a simple bridge between wired and wireless networks.
    i use an older cheap linksys wireless router in this configuration and it works great.

    That sounds like it should work. Hadn't thought of using the LAN ports. I'll try it when I get back to the office on Monday. Thanks.
