You need to open a browser and enter the numbers 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. it will ask for a user name and password. the default user name and password is "admin". if you have entered a different password while setting up the wireless connectivity, please use that password. once you entered the credentials, you can disable the DHCP server in the setup page of the linksys router. i have attached a screen shot for your reference. if you have any difficulties in doing this process, please reply to this message. hope it helps you.

Do the server connected wired or wireless?Your server IP need to be in the same range of your router like 192.168.0.102.Can you wire your server directly to modem or to the router?

Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device

The Network Key you're probably asking for is on a sticker located, underneath the router. Can you check?

Here's a way to configure your router for your existing network (assuming you already have one) :

If you have an existing network, chances are you have already configured network services on the network. In this case, you would use the router as a pure Access Point to extend the range of your network by allowing more attachment of wireless and wired computers. You MUST also turn off the DHCP server on the router if there is a DHCP server running to avoid IP address conflict.

To configure the router as an Access Point with the DHCP server disabled:

  1. Open your web browser and go to http://my.router, (or the default address http://192.168.2.1.)

  2. Click the Basic Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

  3. Select Access Point Mode.

  4. Click the Next button.

  5. Click OK to dismiss the DHCP disabled message box (The DHCP server will be disabled in Access Point Mode by default).

  6. Click the Advanced Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

  7. Click the Advanced IP Settings tab on the left navigation bar.

  8. Assign an IP address to the Wireless Broadband Router.

    note.gif NOTE: The IP address should be reserved by the DHCP server. The Wireless Broadband Router cannot act as a DHCP client, therefore, it needs a static IP address for its LAN interface.

  9. Click the Submit button.

  10. Click the Save & Restart button.

  11. Note the status bar at the bottom of the screen.

  12. While the Wireless Broadband Router resets, the Power light on the front of the unit blinks.

  13. When your web browser returns to the main page of the Wireless Broadband Route, the device has successfully restarted with the new settings.
    note.gif NOTE: The main page may not return if you have changed IP address of the router in Step 8. To view the main page, type the new IP address of the router in the web browser to access it.



  14. Plug an Ethernet cable from the existing local network into any LAN port on the Wireless Broadband Router.

I have a unstable linksys WAG200G what can I do


Converting A Router To A Switch The five steps are:
  1. [Optional] Put a piece of electric tape over the WAN port so it doesn't get used.
  2. Disable the DHCP server.
  3. Change the downstream router's LAN IP.
  4. [Optional] Turn off the wireless radio on the downstream router.
  5. Connect an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router.
Step 1: Putting a piece of electric tape over the WAN port isn't necessary. But it is a good way to prevent future problems caused by someone plugging a device into that port.
Step 2: Log into the downstream router, look for the DHCP configuration section, and disable the DHCP server. For example, on a Dlink DI-614+, DHCP server configuration is a menu in the Home configuration section.

Step 3: Change the downstream router's LAN IP to an unused IP in the same subnet as the upstream router. Log into the upstream router and find the DHCP server controls. Figure 3 shows a typical set of DHCP server controls. You can see that 192.168.3.200 - 250 is the range of addresses that will be issued by this router's DHCP server.
You can use any IP address outside (above or below) this range, except for 0 and 255, which are reserved. You also can't use the IP address used by the upstream router. This is usually 1, which in this case is 192.168.3.1. But if you log into your upstream router's admin screens using an IP address with anything other than 1 as the last octet, i.e. XXX.XXX.XXX.1, then just don't use that address.
Thus, a safe LAN IP address for the downstream router that isn't used by the upstream router is an address from 192.168.3.2 to 192.168.3.199. So I assigned my downstream router a LAN IP of 192.168.3.3 (Figure 4).
Step 4: [Wireless routers only] Disable the downstream router's wireless function. It doesn't hurt to unscrew the antennas from the downstream router as well if they are detachable. This gets them out of the way since you aren't using them anymore. Figure 5 shows the wireless disabled for a D-Link DGL-4300.
Step 5: Connect the downstream router. Run an Ethernet cable from a LAN port on the upstream router to a LAN port on the downstream router. The LAN ports are the ports that often grouped together and not labeled as WAN or Internet.

What is the IP address of the E1000 router ?
If the IP address of E1000 router is 192.168.1.1, Then change the IP address of WRT54G router to 192.168.1.2. Connect the Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port of E1000 router to the Ethernet port of WRT54G router ( port 1 of E1000 to port 1 of WRT54g). Disable the DHCP server.

You can do it in a different way also.
If the IP address of E1000 is 192.168.1.1. then change the IP address of the WRT54g to 192.168.2.1. Do not disable the DHCP server of the WRT54G. Connect the E1000 to the Internet port of WRT54G.

Perhaps the server is setup with DHCP services enabled?

If it's a windows server, try going to control panel--administrative tools and look for DHCP server

If it's there open it, then right click the server's name and choose disable dhcp.

Then reboot the server and the desktop and see if that works.

also the server may have a static IP address that would need to be changed to dhcp

How do I configure DHCP server on my wireless router?


Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the wireless router in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter. Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK. Step 3 Click on the Home tab and then click on DHCP to the left. Note: If you are connecting to a DHCP server, the DHCP server on the wireless router should be set to Disabled. Step 4 By default, DHCP Server is set to Enabled. To disable it, click the Disabled radio button. To enable it, click the Enabled radio button. Step 5 Enter the Starting IP Address and Ending IP Address. To change the lease time, select a value from the drop-down list next to Lease Time. Note: The value for Starting IP Address must be less than the value for Ending IP Address. Step 6 Click on Apply then click Continue to save the settings.
