lilkev715 Posted February 17, 2004 Posted February 17, 2004 Ok, I am getting a new router because my existing one(D-Link 704-P rev. A) just sucks. My current router wont open ports under Virtual Server, wont do port fowarding, DMZ wont work, and upgrading the latest firmware doesnt even work either. The only think saving it from the trash can is that it has a built in parallel print server(very handy). So, I want to get a new router (Linksys BEFSR81) and have one of the regular 10/100 ports(not the WAN port) hooked up to the D-Link router so I can still utilize the parallel print server. All the computers in my house will be connected to the Linksys, while print commands should be sent to the D-Link router that is hooked up to the Linksys. I do have cross-over cable if necessary as well as regular cat-5 cable. Should this work out? Normally the print commands are sent to 192.168.0.1 as that is my default home network gateway. Will I run into any problems when the DHCP on the Linksys router assigns the D-Link router an IP address? I think that theorhetically it could work but I wanted to ask your guys opinions.
