Use Linksys WAG54G as DSL modem only, and connect another router

    Hi, I've got a Linksys WAG54G v.2 DSL modem/router. I think the router is defective - I can only get one of the LAN ports to work at a time for some reason. I like the fact that it will log into my DSL service instead of the crappy DSL modem I got from my ISP here in HK. What I want to do is have the WAG54G act as a DSL modem and hook in a WRT54G to act as the network router. Is this possible? Or if I follow the other guides posted here about linking two routers together can I then still use the WAG54G to provide DHCP service to the computers that I plug into the WRT54G (as secondary router)? Many thanks! Bill in HK.

    Yep, if you've already seen my router connection configuration, that should work. Have you reset the WAG54G to factory defaults and taken another look at the other ports? I think if it's in bridged mode, it might only have one active output port. There might not be anything wrong with the router. :)
