I have a Linksys WRT54G router that I need to connect.
My company already has a network with a 2000 server which works as a DHCP/DNS server. There is also another router on the network (192.168.3.1). I need to plug the Linksys into a network port, have it serve wireless, but allow the IP address, routing, and name resolution to be handled by the server and router.
Existing Router: 192.168.3.1
Existing server: 192.168.3.38
IP Addresses dynamically assigned by the Windows server: 192.168.3.100-199
What I plan on doing is connecting to the wireless router, setting a Static IP address of 192.168.3.201, turning off DHCP, configuring the name/password info for the router, and then unplugging the "Internet port" and plugging that cable in to a regular switch port.
Is my logic flawed, or should this work?
When I make the change I need to do it fairly quickly (under 20 minutes), so I want to make sure I have everything lined up properly before I begin.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
