Recently, I've been trying to repair/upgrade a network. I did not build the network, and there are some things I haven't been able to figure out yet. There are some four routers/access points, three of which are Linksys WRT54GL and the other is a Linksys WRT160Nv3. The 54GLs are set up as repeaters/access points. I've been able to access the 160N and two of the 54GLs, but cannot gain access to the last 54GL.
Originally, the 54GL in question was working (i.e. the internet was accessible when connected from it), but attempting to access the internet via its default IP (192.168.1.1) routes me to the 160N. Which makes sense. The default gateway, 192.168.14.1, gives me a network time-out error (as in it takes too long to respond). The other two 54GLs are accessible from 192.168.14.1 (those two are currently not integrated into the network, which is why all three use the same address).
I attempted to access the 54GL via its ethernet ports on the back and got the same results as trying wireless. I then tried resetting the router via soft reboot (power cable). When it came back on, the router no longer worked at all. Now I can connect but with only a limited connection, no internet access, and I still can't access the router itself. I don't know what firmware it's using, but the other two 54GLs are using DD-WRT v24. The 160N is using v3.0.0.02 of the default Linksys firmware.
Any suggestions on other ideas? Right now I'm thinking of flashing it and starting over.
