I have a small network with two pc's, a switch and a dsl-router-modem that provides an ethernet output. I take the e-net output from the dsl-router-modem and, going thru the switch, I supply the two pc's and that part works fine. An "ipconfig" call shows that the dsl-router-modem is the default gateway. Both pcs can use the internet and use each others files, etc. Now I want a wireless access for a laptop. I have purchased a broadband wireless router, namely a linksys wrt54g, but the setup doesn't address my topology. I don't want to change anything, I just want to cable from my switch to one of the wrt54g ports. Having done this, I don't seem to find the setup combination that will make this a part of my network. IS IT POSSIBLE? HAVE I PURCHASED THE WRONG DEVICE? DO I HAVE TOO MANY ROUTERS?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
