hey there all...i hope people dont get tired of these question especially since this is what the forum is for..here is my probelm.
i currently have a dell 600sc server plus 2 dell workstations using winxp pro all networking together. i have dsl access for both workstations and everything goes through my watchguard firebox soho6.
recently i bought a laptop with winxp pro and tried to get the laptop onto the internet. laptop does have a wireless card already and i can surf the net at home without a problem ( I am having problems sharing files and creating a netwrok at home but i digress).
i bought the linksys wrt54g even though i think i just needed a wireless access point. I tried confuring the router and connected the cable to one of the four ports on the router to a free slot on the firebox (as opposed to the internet port on my router since my internet is also going into the WAN connection in the firebox). i could get the router to configure. i was unble to access the internet. i tried manually configuring the router only to discover that the internet connection would deactivate once the router was attached to the firebox. i tried to trick the router and plugged it in only after getting the internet connection back on line.
the linksys manual asks to access http://192.168.1.1
and we i was finally able to get there, i was being asked my login and password for my SOHO6.
i then noticed that the system status page for the watchguard is http://192.168.111.1
so it seems to me that there is an ip conflict and that is why i cant get the router configured. am i right?
and if so what can be done..
