      Forwarding DG834GT to another router (DD-WRT).

      Hey, I just got my linksys wrt (WRT54Gv4) router (Flashed with DD-WRT v24) today as i get really bad wireless range with my sky netgear DG834GT (DGTeam firmware V1.02.16 - DGTeam Rev. 0848).

      I was wondering if it could be possible for me to able to able to connect the two routers so I can send the linksys signal through my home. I have tried simply connecting it through ethernet through the linksys WAN port (this blocks every port even after DMZing).

      Any ideas? Sorry for my poor grammer, I don't have any excuses for that =].

      You will have to change the IP address on the Linksys to the same range as the Netgear, say 192.168.0.254, turn off it's DHCP server and connect one of it's ethernet ports to one of the Netgears ethernet ports. If you have your PCs set up to use the Netgear wireless, set up the Linksys with the same SSID and password. You may have to turn off the wireless in the Netgear to avoid interference. There is little chance of it, but you are better reducing the range of the Netgear to 192.168.0.2 to 253, to avoid the Linksys address being allocated to another machine.

      I have tried this, unfortunately I end up losing my internet connection through the linksys and windows tells me to check my gateway.

      I am afraid I don't understand this. If you are able to connect to the internet through the Linksys, what is your problem? Do you connect then loose the connection? If so is the Netgears connection to the internet staying up?
      You have connected to an ethernet port on the Linksys, not the WAN port as you mentioned. The WAN port is meant to be connected to a modem, if you connect it to a router your may have problems.

      Internet works, but every port is blocked. I cant use my 360, P2P applications or any online games with it.

      Where are the ports being blocked? I did not think the ports on the Linksys would come into play at all. If they are, it seems it is still trying to be the 'boss' rather than the servant of the Netgear.
      I am not familiar with the Linksys but some routers have a function where you can disable NAT as well as DHCP, this may help. Some also have a function where you can set the WAN port to 'Switch' which may be worth a try if you have this function. A switch is all you want it for really. You would need to connect to the WAN port and not ethernet for this to work.

      I found the switch and it works like a beauty! Thank you so much! I've been working for days on this.
