Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)
The thing you don't say, is that you already have a high speed network connection by either DSL or cable. You already have a modem/router that you plug into for your internet. This one is an extra one you would like to use as an access point for your home wireless network.
You will need to set it up as a router not a gateway in the configuration. You should turn off the DHCP for the wireless router and just let it perform pass thru to the primary router to assign IP addresses. Set up the wireless router to have an IP address in the same subnet as the primary. If primary is 192.168.1.1 set the wireless routers IP to be 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.3, etc. Then set up the configuration for the wireless settings and test the wireless connections with a laptop or PC. Plug the Wan connector on the wireless router to one of the ports on the primary router and you should be good to go.
