    Hey fellas,
    I have a WRT54G right now, working perfectly.
    But few days ago, I bought the WRT54gx2 to expand my range, to cover the 3rd floor.
    i connected it to the WRT54G , putting it into the 3 rd ethernet port of the WRT54G and into the internet port of the WRT54gx2.

    On my PC it shows me now 2 wireless connections, and i can connect to both, but when i connect to the WRT54gx2 one, i dont get internet.

    I also cant reach the router, typing in into the router and also cant ping it in cmd.

    Is there also a way, to only use the new router, but how the I get into the settings in the first place?

    If I only connect the new router, what information do i have to type in, to connect to the internet ( in the ppoee field)

    thanks for your help:redface:

    One way to make it work is to LAN-LAN them.

    Both routers have default, so do these following steps:

    1. Unplug the SRX from the G, hard-reset the SRX. Then connect the SRX to a separate computer, access the setup page at, change the LAN IP to, disable the DHCP server option and ONLY THEN save the settings.
    2. Shut the power off the SRX, connect it to the ethernet port of the G. It can be like this : port 1 of G to port 1 of SRX.
    3. Connect a computer to port 3, plug back the power to the SRX and you should be good to go.
    4. For seamless connection, make the wireless settings of the G and the SRX to match. If not, change the SRX settings to be unique.

    Hope this helps.

    I want it to be not connected to a pc, just the 2 router, so no pc has to be on all the time, maybe thats what you meant by seamless, but what do you mean by make the wireless settings match? which specific settings?
    but thanks for your help, i appreciate it, buddy
