1. Yes. That's what routers do. :-) However, the "normal" Linksys can only link 2 networks. No more than that.

2. Not me.

Connect a PC to one of the LAN ports.
Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router (usually 192.168.1.1).

Go to http://www.linksys.com for a user guide that has the details.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

You don't have to do anything to enable routing. It's already configured.

Most Linksys routers are designed to connect an internal network to the outside world with most communications being originated from the internal network.

Because all traffic from the inside to outside is NATed, they're really not meant to connect to internal networks together. Even though you can make certain traffic originate in both directions by using port forwarding, it's not very practical.

Some linksys routers can turn off NAT.  Look for it under advanced settings.  Then you can assign the LAN side one address on the first network like 192.168.1.1 and the WAN side another address on the second network like 192.168.5.1

to make a sure the machines on 192.168.1.x can get to 192.168.5.x you must install a route, like so:

on the 192.168.1.x machines:
   route add 192.168.5.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
and then on the 192.168.5.x machines:
   route add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.5.1

those commands are for XP, under unix it is similar (mask is netmask)

I know the BEFSR series can do this, I'm sure others can.

@pattjin

I think so.  Look for something to the effect of "Enable NAT" or "NAT Disable" or "No-NAT"

You want NAT to be disabled to use it as a pure router.
