Ok I have 2 Linksys WRT54G broadband routers and a ADSL Modem.
I have one connected to a ADSL modem acting as a bridge with PPPoE configured on the router.
Now I want to connect another identical (well it's a lot newer) Linksys.
I can and should do this with the WAN port right?
Shouldn't I connect the WAN port of my new (the one I want to add to the network) to a LAN port on my old (the one that is connected to the modem) router?
The reason for all this it that I'm playing with Linux on the WRT54G
here a link if youre interrested Linux on WRT54G
I bought one more only for this
And the router's WAN port MUST be configured to be able to send over the linux system to it.
It would also be good if I could connect computers to the new router and they could access the Internet AND the other computers on the old router.
I have tried to find a tutorial or guide with google to help me, but I haven't found so much, and those I found didn't work sadly.
Some things I have read though was that I should disable DHCP on the new router.
This should be right because I have read it on a lot of places.
What I have a problem with is how the wan port should be configured.
first should it be DHCP or Static? my guess is Static.
then what IP address should the WAN port have?
and what gateway?
and the hardest of them all netmask!!!?
I have read that the gateway should be 0.0.0.0 or whatever is that right?
also what should the netmask of the network be, the LAN ports.
should any of the ports or netmasks on the new (slave router) be the same as the the old router (master router)
I shouldn't have to change anything on the old router right?
can the ip addresses of the routers be like; Old 192.168.1.1 and New 192.168.1.2?
I will be very happy if someone can help me by either pointing me to a tutorial or finding a solution.
here how I want it to be configured
modem-1 to router-1
cpu-x to router-1
router-2 to router-1
cpu-x to router-2
hope you understand
