Web Server from home mulitple Public IP's

mark.oiler
I have a client that wants to run a webserver from his house using his cable connection. Going the cheap route he wants to use his existing linksys wrt54g router. This is the info i passed to him. You can place a switch between your cable modem and router to get the effect you want assign 1 public ip to the router and 1 to the webserver. Run a cable from the webserver straight to the switch bypassing the router. Client says this works but he wants the safety of being behind the linksys wrt54g. I tell him to purchase a second wrt54g and do the same thing modem - swtich - router1/router2 Now client says that only 1 ip will work at a time either or. How can I get both of these ips to work through each linksys router? Is there a step i missed? any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you.

    Open port 80 and direct it to the internal IP of his web server.

    Your linksys router has a built in DHCP server, so for that you may disregard the webserver. And setting the configuration depends on whether you have a cable or dsl connection. Since you hava a cable connection, simply open the router's set-up page, clone the pc's mac (mac address of pc that usually gets online)and change lan ip to 192.168.2.1, then turn off modem, router and pc. Turn on modem, then router then pc and see if all the other pcs can get online as well- i meant wired and wireless after trying the steps..
    Good luck..
