Hey guys,

Ok i cant figure this out for the life of me and im hoping somone has these two networked up and could help me. Everytime i get one of the the computers working the other one screws up ><.

Well im really quite new to networking so please bear with me.

Ok i have the Dynalink plugged into the WAN port of the Linksys. On the Dynalink i have disabled NAT and enabled PPP IP Extension, also it is a DHCP Server. I havent touched anything else.

The Linksys is running DD-WRT, it is is DCHP mode for WAN and it is a DHCP server for LAN. That is all i have done to the linksys.

Right now my laptop can connect to the internet but for some reason my desktop won't. My desktop is plugged into a LAN port on the linksys, and i really cant figure out whats going on. So could somone lease help me out im really really lost, i need to know anything and everything i would need to do.

BTW what im trying to get is the Dynalink into Half-Bridge mode and get the Linksys to do the routing, also the laptop is connecting over wireless.

Cheers in advance

Hi luch,

I have a similiar setup, in my attempts to get around nat and Apple iChatAV (but that's another topic;)

The only difference that I can see is that I put in a bi-dir nat rule in the ADSL router (nat turned on) that points everything to the WAN ip on the linksys. I am using a standard linksys image on the wrt54gl though. I have Wireless devices and LAN devices working okay....sorry. ;)

I know that this is double nat'ting and I think this is causing my iChatAV problems but I was able to use uPNP on the Linksys which I wanted to try. The uPNP seemed to work, but the double nat didn't help me.
