What are you trying to accomplish?

From what I read, you have a DSL modem/router/firewall providing internet access and firewall abilities to a wireless router which feeds the rest of your network. Nothing wrong with that. What else are you trying to accomplish?

Again, I'm going by what you are briefly stating: it appears this is what you already have. The DSL router/modem is providing your internet. It possibly is providing DHCP to your wireless router which inturn is pulling an IP from the DSL router. Nothing wrong with that...

Let's say your DSL router is providing your wireless router WAN connection with the IP 192.168.1.1... the only thing you would need to do is change (if it isn't this already) the default LAN (not WAN) IP scheme on the wireless router to something OTHER than 192.168.1.1, say for example 192.168.0.1.

Now your LAN devices will pull their IP address via DHCP from the wireless router. No conflicts and your DSL router is invisible to everything except the wireless router.

my only concern in the other thread...is that he's trying to portforward through 2 routers to set up a server on the inside network...i've not had much success with doing this through 2 routers...but...that said i haven't tried it that often...

yer i was thinking about it and would it be easyier if i turned the adsl router to not a router so its just like an internet port and have the wireless router as the only router. is this possible cos i think it would be quite a bit simpler :whistling:
