I am trying to put a Linksys WRT54G at the end of a Cat5e segment to create an extended star, off of a Netgear WGR614.
I have set the 614 to have the address 192.168.1.254 with the DSL as the default gateway.
I have tried to create a static route, on both the Linksys and the Netgear, and tried to just configure the Linksys (in Router mode)to use the Netgear as its default gateway--the Linksys reports "invalid IP address or subnet mask" and doesn't accept the input.
Are there any suggestions for me to try?
Basically, I have a couple of PCs at one end of the house, and several PCs down at the other...more than I have ports on a single WAP/router.
