Hey guys, I have a weird one for you.

I have 2 routers, the first a WRT54G Linksys that has the DHCP server enabled, the second router is a Dlink and has the DHCP server disabled because I'm using is a gateway router. The strange thing, is when one of my machines requests an ip address, the ip comes out fine, however about 1 out of 5 times, the gateway address gets assigned wrong. The gateway should be 192.168.1.1 not 192.168.1.254. My second router's address is 192.168.1.2. I'm stumped on this one cause I've been trying to figure this out for months. Any ideas??

I have 2 routers setup to provide G and N wireless networks, with N being the primary and the G connected thorugh a normal LAN port not the WAN.

The N router is connected to my cable modem and provides DHCP.

The G router has DHCP disabled with the WAN settings ignored, and its network set to

I.P 192.168.254
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.0.1
DNS 192.168.0.1
