Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have installed a wrt54g for my lap top and it works great but there is one problem. I have cable internet using a Scientific atlantic modem. My tower is old and has no ethernet connection so it is using a USB connection from the modem. The router is using the ethernet connection. When I estabilish my wireless connection for my laptop the IP address changes so my tower cant get online. How do I stop this and keep both units working???
Possible three (3) solutions:
1. Purchase and install a PCI LAN card (NIC) inside your "old tower". Should not be that difficult using any available PCI slot. Most would be auto detect/install by Windows (XP) or should come with a driver CD;
2. Use a USB to Ethernet adapter/converter; and/or
3. Use static IP address for the tower Same IP add (+1 on the last digit, same Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS (if any). Should you need additional information on this method you need to post back details of your modem (brand/model, normally in a sticker underneath) so we can determine if it will allow simultaneous connection on USB & LAN.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
