HELP with lynksys wireless connected to fios box

UGGG!! :fou: Ive been at this for a LONG time so I said WTH Ill ask the TOM's community. anyways I have a wireless router (linksys WTR54G router) and im trying to connect it to my FIOS router (which also has wireless) and I've tried a lot of configurations and it just doesnt work. The wireless on the FIOS router has to be on because I just want my own personal wireless network. So if you guys could help me out that would be very much appreciated.

  1. If you're trying to connect the two via wireless they both need to support WDS -- other wise ethernet cable between the two perhaps as per this:

  2. Are you trying to setup two separate wireless networks, or use the Linksys as an access point?

    make sure you set the internal IP of the Linksys to something like 192.168.254.1

    set a password on the Linksys wireless.

    then you connect the Linksys WAN port to your FIOS router.
