Gateway for 2 router network

By Mike Online ·
I am setting up a home network. First router (Linksys BEFSR41) is running as the gateway and my DHCP server and everything is ok. My 2 PC's wired to it are ok.

I have a wireless router (Linksys WRT54GS)in another part of the house (for reception purposes) to another PC upstairs. It is connected to the Uplink port in the wired router, and I can access its setup menu from a PC connected to the wired router.

It is set to Router mode (rather than gateway) and I have DHCP off.
ID's are as follows:

Wired - 192.168.1.1
Wireless - 192.168.1.2

My problem is that I cannot access the Internet from the PC connected wireless. I show "very good" signal strength. When I do IPCONFIG it does not show a Gateway address.

Any suggestions on what I have done wrong?

Try giving the wireless a static ip address try using 192.168.1.105 for ip and default gateway enter 192.168.1.2 and for dns enter 192.168.1.1

routers segment networks into smaller subnets. each subnet has to have its own IP address range and subnet mask. if you assign one router 192.168.1.1-254 ip address range with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0/24 and the other subnet 192.168.2.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0/24 you'll get your 2 subnets to work.

you COULD subnet the 192.168.1.1/24 ip address range out by stealing 2,3,or 4 bits from the host portion of that range to create some subnets but unless your a Cisco routing wiz or IP addressing wiz, it can be a pain to calculate out.
