I have a Asus AAM6000EV, ADSL , working on Jetstream very well
I want to add a Wireless Linksys Router so i can connect to a Centrio notebook.
The Lan is set to 192.168.1.20
DNS Servers are dictated the Xtra Jetstream Servers (202.?????40/??)

the Asus BroadBand Modem admin page is at 192.168.1.1

I insert the Linksys WRT45G into the system and wireless connection to the notebook happens , but not to the internet!

I have discovered that the Linksys Routers admin page is also 192.168.1.1
is this significant?

or is it that i have to answer some settings on the linksys admin page, if so what would be the most likely settings?

Please can any one help?

Hmmm interesting...

Yes I would say it is the IP address causing problems. If you think about it the notebook will be looking for address 192.168.1.1. Now because the Linksys is wireless and you're connecting via wireless obviously... once it connects to the router it will assume that the router's 192.168.1.1 address is the correct IP address it is supposed to connect to. Hence you cannot connect to the Internet.

I am no expert but maybe you could make a MAC address association somewhere, MAC addresses are unique to each device (no 2 are the same) so you may be able to work around your problem with that.

I am honestly taking a stab in the dark here. The only thing I am fairly positive about is the fact that the router and the ADSL modem have the same IP address and that's what's causing the problem.

Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

cheers

You will have to change the IP Address of the Asus to 192.168.1.2

Fantastic Guys
Thanks for all your help
the answer was the ip address clash all along
i reset the Lan to auto ip and auto dns although the settings dont really matter here.
i logged onto the adsl router 192.168.1.1
changed its ip address to 192.168.1.10
rebooted the ADSL
plugged the wireless back in and reset it
wham
up and running
192.168.1.1 is still accessable
it is now the admin page for the wireless router ( default IP setting i guess)
I could have changed the IP address for the wireless router abd that was my next step if this didnt work.

cheers
