  1. Hi,

    I wish to configure 2 linksys wrt54g/s routers on one network. I have the first as my gateway to the internet and there are 2 PC's connected to it.

    I have linked the second router to the first and connected 3 PC's to it.

    I can get the internet on all PC's but I can't network between them. (Only the PC's that are on the same router.) I can't even ping any of them that are on a different router.

    Can anyone help please?

    Isn't that something to do with turning on the "Bridging" section of the router.

    I did find this about creating bridged networks on a wireless system, as you dont say if its wired or wireless it might not apply

    disable dhcp in 2nd router change ip address in 2nd router to make it a gateway switch
    first router 192.168.1.1
    2nd router 192.168.1.110 or last 3 digits your choice
    I would make it the last set of 225
    any port on first to the uplink on 2nd
