I have a Windows Me PC with Verizon DSL and a Westell 2200 modem. Without a router, the setup works fine. I have been unsuccessful at adding a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router. Some specific questions:
- Does the Westell setup have to change (e.g., to bridge mode) if a router is added downstream?
- Both the modem and router have the same default IP address (192.168.1.1). When the router is added, that address points to the router setup page with no apparent conflict. Does the router IP address have to be changed (e.g., to 192.168.2.1)?
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could summarize the setup process of adding the router. (I know what the hardware connections are.) Thanks for any suggestions.
