    I just got a wrt54g to provide wireless to my previously wired-only network.

    I connected the WAN port on the wrt54g to a regular port on the main router (RV082), set the wrt54g to use a static ip ( on the rv082's network, and set the network ip on the wrt54g to

    I'm able to connect wireless to the wrt54g and get an via dhcp on the 192.168.100.x network and surf the web.

    But, I can't connect to the wrt54g from my main network -- no connectivity whatsoever to

    This means that I can't config the wrt54g from my network (only via wireless), and I my wireless notebook can't see any of the devices on my wired network.

    Is there a better way to config this?

    Thank you very much,

    Mmm, not good for what you want to do.

    Do not use the wan port to connect to the RV082, it's a different VLAN/different ip-range as you defined it and so you are isolating two segments.
    From what I believe you just want to use the WRT54G as an AP.

    OK, this is how it is supposed to work.

    -go to the config page of the WRT54G with your laptop and make sure that you turn off the DHCP server on the lan side.
    You want to let the RV082 give you an IP and 2 DHCP servers is a no go

    -Check that you've set the WRT54G in the same ip-range as the RV082 is giving out but stay out of the scoop.
    This is that you can access your WRT54G's config page all over the network.
    You can set it to another ip-range for security reasons, but then make sure to write down the ip somewhere.

    -connect a port from the RV082 to one of the 4 lan ports on the WRT54 and you should be set to go
