I have some BEFSR41 Linksys cable routers.  Does anyone know to turn these into regluar network routers that can route to different subnets?  i.e. route traffic from a 192.x.x.x subnet to a 10.x.x.x.
This will save me having to purchase routers.

Thanks,

In the routing tab, you should have an option to change Operating Mode from Gateway to Router. That should be all you need to do..

I don't think its that easy.  I set it to router.  I assigned the Wan port as 10.1.1.1 and the lan port 192.168.1.1. I plug a 192.x.x.x computer into port 1 and can ping 10.1.1.1.
I plug a 10.1.1.2 computer into the wan port and for one thing I don't link lights when I plug directly into wan port, second, I can't ping 10.1.1.1 from my 10.1.1.2 computer.

Any ideas?

You have to use a crossover cable in the WAN port, or uplink it to another hub or switch...
