Just curious... why do you have your setup like that?

I have a DSL modem as well that works as a Server/Bridge. I keep it on Server.

How I have my settings and it works:

DSL:
(LAN Config)
IP: 192.168.1.1
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Linksys Router:
(WAN Config)
IP: 192.168.1.2
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DNS: Comes from your DSL status page.

Router:
(LAN)
IP: 192.168.2.1
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

I have my settings as this:

DSL Modem ==> connected to ===> WAN port of Router ===> LAN 1 Port of Router ===> goes into main switch.

That way I don't have clients for computers and not a dedicated server for a computer where you need to keep your computer on for the network to be connected at all times.

So when I type:

Http://192.168.1.1 ==> access the WebUI for the DSL Modem
http://192.168.2.1 ===> access the WEBUI for linksys

All your client computers coming off the Linksys will have Dynamic IPs as:

192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.254
