Hi guys, I got sick of using wireless on my computer in my living room, so I ran an ethernet cable to it. My setup is this: speedstream 5100 DSL modem, to a linksys wrt54g, then I ran a 50 ft cable to my living room into a dell truemobile router (it was free//collecting dust) For some reason, I can no longer access other computer's files on the network. I set the dell router to bridge mode, but can not browse the internet. In order for the internet to work, I have to be in gateway mode
any ideas anyone?
thanks in advance

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!
