Hi guys, I have a WRT160N wireless router than I'm essentially trying to use as a glorified access point, but I can't figure out how to configure it.
I can get a wired machine connected to the internet without the linksys at all by assigning a static IP to the machine (192.168.1.1), pointing the machine to the WAN port on the router for the gateway (192.168.1.254), and using my ISP DNS servers without any problem. Internet works fine.
What I want to do, is get the linksys in behind the router to provide wireless access, but can't figure out how to configure it. If I plug the internet port on the linksys into the WAN port on the real router, I'd need to statically set the IP since the WAN port on the router does not provide DHCP. I know what the gateway is (192.168.1.254), but don't really know what to put as the internet IP, or if I'm going down the wrong path completley.
Can anyone lend a hand?
