I'm trying to access the setup page for my Linksys wireless-g, model WRT54GS. I found the default gateway address and went to it with a browser, but i'm getting a Zyxel setup page, which i believe is the ADSL modem, model P660R, i believe.

I'm not sure I really even need to access the Linksys, but I can't figure out how to do what I want (port forwarding) on the zyxel page. And anyway i'm just curious, any ideas how I can get to the linksys setup?

Were you hardwired into the WRT?

192.168.1.1 should get you there.

Unplug the Linksys from the network and connect it directly to your computer. Plug into the LAN port, not WAN port. Renew your IP address. In browser type the 192.168.1.1 with password of admin (default). You need to change the LAN starting IP address to 192.168.2.1. Once that is saved, connect up the Linksys as normal in network. You are probably conflicting IP addresses.

192.168.2.1 ?

Would`t you want 192.168 .1.2?

Maybe not, if the Zyxel is also a router you need to set up back to back routers on different subnets. Second router would need to have the WAN set to obtain IP automatically from the first and the LAN IP should be on the 192.168.2.1 subnet. If both are on the 192.168.1.* you will have problems.

Thought subnet was along the lines of 255.255.255.xxx

My 8 PC LAN is all on the static IP range of 192.168.25.x with no problems. This includes a bridge and WAP. The first router in line after the cable modem is set as the DHCP server. It is set to hand out IP`s from 192.168.25.100 thru 192.168.25.199 for any clients machines we introduce into the LAN.

The OS should warn him if there is an IP conflict.
