Hi,

Here is my setup,

Linksys WAG200G used as main modem router for internet. The local IP address is 192.168.1.1

Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH configured as samba server to access my HD for movie and music streaming. The HD is connected through USB. The local IP address is 192.168.1.1

Now every time I want to access the samba server I have to switch the wifi connection to the Buffalo router and at the same time I will lose internet connection.

How can I connect the buffalo router to the Linksys modem router so I can access samba drive and internet at the same time?

Thanks

Best solution

You should be able to cable them lan-lan and change the ip on the buffalo to 192.168.1.2 or something. Turn off the DHCP server in the buffalo.
