I have a Linksys WRT54GS model router and I'm trying to set it up a lan network and a wireless network using it. In the instructions it tells you to have a computer hardwired to the router and install the router software to it. This would be okay except the computers I'm trying to network is a Mac desktop with a broken disk drive and a Windows laptop with working drives. So the only computer I could install the software to was the laptop and now if I unhook the laptop from the router I can't get a wireless signal.
I would like to have the router only hardwired to the mac and have the laptop use the wireless signal, or have no computer connected to the WAN slot and have the Mac hooked in one of the LAN Slots and the laptop run on the wireless.
Could someone please tell me how I could do this.
