Okay, I finally got around to try this and it's a no go. I set the router's subnet to and I can't ping router 2 on from a computer connected directly (wired) to router 1. Is this
what you mean by "should but doesn't". The dd-wrt firmware is supposed to
give you a semi-professional router. Do I need to change the subnet on my
desktop too? That's not an option with dhcp so would I have to use a static
ip on the desktop?
