I have a dsl modem w/a wired linksys router, model befsx41, (2 pc's and 1 business type printer - each w/a static ip). I have visiting baseball players each w/a wireless laptop (2 total) and 1 wireless linksys router, model wrt54g. I plugged the wireless router into the 4th port on the wired router, but the laptops don't get any connectivity. I think I need to access the wireless router and give it a static ip address so that all will work w/my existing network, but don't know how to do this - where to go, how to access the wireless router settings, etc. Or am I missing the boat completely?
I tried plugging the wireless router into the modem, and then plugged in my 2 pc's and printer, but only the laptops get connectivity. [pretty sure this has to do w/the static ip addresses existing for my network.] So, I reverted the configuration back to my original (w/the wireless router connected in my 4th port on the wired router), so that my 2 pc's work.
Thanks for any help! As I'm a newbie, simplicity helps.
