Alright, I have my main PC that is currently connected to the internet w/ my roommate's wrt54g router and it works great. My motherboard has two Ethernet ports and I want to use one of them to have a wired connection to my own WRT54g router for file sharing for systems only connected to that router. However, when I enable my wired connection in windows I can access and ping my router, but I can no longer receive internet, but the wireless connection is still on.
Is there away for me to connect two both these routers and retain internet?
You will probably have to set static ips for your connections. Make sure the non-internet router is not using the same ip range as the internet router. If you can change the subnet that the non-internet router uses.
Try setting the non-internet router nic with no default gateway.
