Need to add Linksys wireless router to Linksys Wired hub
by anilj - 1/29/07 8:18 PM
This wired hub network I am working on keeps expanding!
The 8-port Linksys hub for this wired network is connected to a cable modem at the WAN port. All ports on the hub are connected to PC's and devices. Now, there is the need to connect a couple of laptops wirelessly. I am using a Linksys 54G wireless router. The wired hub does not have a uplink port. Hence, I connected the router to one of the ports.
Linksys hubs and routers default to IP address 192.168.1.1. Hence, I configured the wireless router to 192.168.1.2 and also stopped the DHCP service at the router.
The laptops do not connect with Internet wirelessly nor if connected by wire to the router. Am I missing some other setting/s I should be tweaking?
I thank in advance for your guidance.
