    I'm preparing to set up my XBox to my W/LAN using a spare Belkin F5D7230-4 as an access point connecting to the Linksys WRT54G. The set-up will be something like this:

    Cable - Cable Modem - WRT54G - PC

    Laptop with built-in Wireless----

    Xbox - Belkin F5D----

    Belkin have supplied me with instructions on setting up the router as an access point, and mentioned needing to set it to an IP in the Linksys' Range.

    Now, the Linksys defaults to 192.168.1.1, so can I set the Belkin to 192.168.1.254, or any 192.168.1.X?

    Also, how can I see all the devices connecting to the network on one machine? For example, would I use the PC to see and identify the network devices: Router, Laptop, Belkin, etc., or would I use the Linksys' interface?

    Thanks for any help, guys.

    You can log into the Linksys, and look at the DHCP logs. It will show you all of the active DHCP Leases. It won't show up any static IPs. You can try something like "[email protected] Network Monitor". I googled it, and it looks like it will scan you LAN for nodes.

    I have tried this, and I've jsut gone through every tab on my router's GUI. The only material like this I find is an incoming and outgoing connections log (not what we need) and the router table showing the connections between the router and the Internet/PC/Laptop.

    But the addresses are not Network addresses 192.168.x.x, but 24.1.x.x, our Internet address from the ISP. Is this what I'm looking for? I can't find the DHCP leases anywhere.

    I would give that program a quick try. ([email protected] Network Monitor) It should show all of te IPs local to you.
