    Actually, there's no way that you're using an IP address of 192.168.1.264 for anything, it's not a valid IP address!

    If you're talking about the DHCP server, I normally use 192.168.1.2 through 192.168.1.99 for a typical value. The rest of the subnet range is reserved for static IP addresses.

    Alright, almost there. I still have some difficulty with the webradio connecting to the wireless router.

    I'm a little confused. The IP range you mention to change for example: 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.264, that must be in the DHCP server area? You mentioned change the router's LAN server to 192.168.0.264. Isn't 264 out of the upper limit (255) for IP addresses?

    So the manual indicates the Asus secondary router is 192.168.1.1
    Change that to 192.168.0.264?

    Or change the DHCP server range, even though it is disabled?

    Your primary router, the Linksys 2102, has the Dhcp server that you will be using. That's the one you change to have a range of, for example 192.168.0.2 thru 192.168.0.99.

    You can then assign any device (e.g., the LAN address of the Asus) a static IP in the range 192.168.0.100 through 192.168.0.254. (The highest valid value of the last number is 255, and that is reserved for special use.)

    So, you change the Asus LAN from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.254; but to make sure the Linksys does not assign .254 you have to change the Linksys Dhcp server's address range.

    Here is the 2102 Lan setup and the Asus Lan setup.

    Changing the latter from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.264 I cannot enter the webpage of the device.

    It looks from your screnshots that you managed to access the Asus webpage at 192.168.1.1. Be sure you disabled the DHCP server.

    After you change the Asus router IP address to 192.168.0.254, that IP will become the new IP address for the webpage (192.168.1.1 won't work anymore).

    Once you have your cables reconnected the way you started, you should power everything off; then turn them back on in order modem > Linksys > Asus > computers.

    The problem is Frank4d, after the switch to 192.168.0.264, I can no longer access the web interface page.

    I must have missed something, maybe a router reboot.

    You need to power off the routers and computers, and reconnect your cables as they were when you started. Then power them back on again.

    Also, you keep mentioning 192.168.0.264 which will never work. It should be 192.168.0.254.

    I've been able to change the secondary router IP LAN address to 192.168.0.254.

    Hopefully this setting will avoid any conflicts with the primary Linksys router and I can connect without difficulty to the webradio.

    Thanks all for your help and patience.
