Home Network Setup (Modem -> Router -> Computer)
I'm new to networking and am trying to add a wireless router to my home network. I have a DSL internet connection through a modem/router that connects to my computer through a static IP on my computer.
I have added a wireless router in between the modem/router and my computer, and a wireless card to my computer. Iwould ultimately like the wireless router to act as a DHCP server so I can easily access the Internet next through my wireless router on various wireless computers simultaneously.
I've read extensively online about subnets, bridges, port forwarding, etc. and tried configure my network correctly to no avail. At one point I could even access remote DNS servers to translate web site names with the "host" command, but couldn't access and remote web pages through a web browser. I'm running a Broadcom 4306 wireless card on Fedora 5 and it's working beautifully and it doesn't appear that I have any hardware problems.
Do I need to use a bridge, port forwarding, different subnets or all of the above and on the modem/router, the router or both? Which should be my DHCP server? I'm confused.
I'm wondering if anyone could point me to a beginner's guide or tell me in simple terms how to configure my network.
