I work in small office with four users and we use Comcast as our ISP. A separate room from the office has our cable modem. The cable modem has a Ethernet cable going to a WRT54G WAN Port. The WRT54G is not being used as a wireless router.
Coming from the LAN ports is a Ethernet cable going to a Netgear switch.
The office has Ethernet ports and one of them is hooked up to a Netgear WDNR3700 wireless router. All users are utilize the wireless network to get online. There IP Address is 10.0.x.x. When I use a Ethernet cable to a computer my IP Address is 192.168.x.x.

What needs to be done so the IP Addresses of the wireless network and wired network use the same IP Address range?

Thank you.

If the Netgear WDNR3700 is connecting to your network through its WAN port, the easiest solution might be to have it connect through one of its LAN ports and use it a switch. Here is a link to the TSG library article that explains how to connect two routers to form a single network. Your WRT54G would be the primary router and the WDNR3700 would be the secondary router in this case.

Or you could connect the computer in question to the same router to which the others are connecting.

Thank you cwwozniak and TerryNet.

I was stuck mentally on assigning the "correct" primary and secondary router. Once I switched my thinking on which one is the primary router it worked great.

Thank you.
