Hey all, hope this isn't a repeat of something already here, couldn't find anything by searching.

Here's what my network looks like.

Cable -> Modem ->wireless router @ 192.168.1.1 -> 1 computer @ 192.168.1.101
-----------------------------------------------------------------> 1 computer @ 192.168.1.102
-----------------------------------------------------------------> BEFSR41v4 wired router (acting as a switch, I have ethernet from port 4 of the wireless to port 1 of this)@ 192.168.1.2 -> Anthing else

Basically, I'm just using the wired router as a switch in the basement for things to come. As of now, everything works fine, I just have to use static IPs for anything on the wired router. . .Is there any way I could use DHCP with the wired without breaking everything? I assumed the computers running on that router would need to be of 192.168.1.2XX, not 192.168.1.1XX. Problem is, the linksys wired router only has one option for DHCP, you can set the server starting adress to anything 192.168.1.XXX. Can't seem to find any way to change that. Any ideas? I would really like DHCP on the wired router as a primary use would be to just plug things in on the fly (game consoles or laptops).

My NetGear router has a setting for the range that you can set DHCP for (say 192.168.0.1 through 192.168.0.98)
Then I set the address for the wireless access point to be 192.168.0.99 and DHCP takes care of everything else.

Can you set the wired router as the DHCP server and use the wireless one just as an access point? Here's a link to the NetGear description: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101496.asp

I'll check that out, I guess it would work. . .in your solution the dhcp covers the access point as well? I try switching some cables around.


Thanks,
Ivan

Yep it worked fine for me - and I've set it up 3 or 4 times. The critical thing is to make sure that the IP of the access point is outside of the DHCP range.
