Wel u see. My older stepbrother has a mac that I didn't know would work with the netgear so I hooked them both up. However it cancelled out the linksys, and setup on the first port of the linksys. So know I can access the router but only through 10.0.0.1. Oh and his mac works with the netgear. In short, I was impatient and I'm usually pretty good with these things, but I rushed it without thinking and screwed it up.
