I have a network that starts with a cable modem: Static IP Modem/Router
with a Linksys WRT54GS plugged to it, followd by a D-Link 24 switch.

The Linksys fails to allow for more than two users.
The Linksys also fails to allow my local IP address to be: 192.168.2.100, instead of 192.168.2.1.
I allows me to set the parameters, but fails to keep them intact.
I have rebooted, factory set the defaults by menu and by pressing the reset (panic) button.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Harvey T.

Since switches are just that a switch, they are not capable of supplying separate identities (IP Addresses) to each device, thus being, both try to access the same IP address at the same time causing conflicts, so a switch is not the best device to use in this case when two computers compete for the same protocol.
It is better to use a device which assigns each device, its own individual IP address.

Is this a new setup? or has it worked in the past?

What is the make and model of the cable modem?

Who is your ISP?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
