which router model and version are you using?

on the bottom it should say something like "WRT54G v3"

maybe you can use DD-WRT firmware and convert them to bridge repeaters

If I understand you right, the routers are connected to each other via network cable. Also you are trying to have one main router, which is connected to the modem, and connect five other routers to the main router, one on each of the other floors. For all computers to see each other, you will need to configure the other five routers as AP (Access Point).

main Linksys router's LAN IP should be 192.168.1.1


Connect only a computer via network cable to the router to be converted nothing else.

log into the router and setup the wireless security.

then disable DHCP and set the LAN IP to 192.168.1.2

finally connect one of the four LAN ports the router to the main router's LAN port.


each router needs to get his own LAN IP use .2 through .6

on the five AP do NOT use the WAN port only connect LAN to LAN

They need to be:

192.168.1.2
192.168.1.3
192.168.1.4
192.168.1.5
192.168.1.6



It sounds like you setup the 2008 server up as a DC (domain controller).

Are you getting a DNS error when trying to add the computer to the domain?
