Linksys WRT54G Static Routing Ping

Specs: XP Pro, 512

Here is my situation...

I bought a WRT54G v5.0. It is set up as follows:

DHCP: Enabled

This router is hooked up internally to our network. I added a Static Route on our Internet Router ( for the router as follows:

In other words, all traffic directed at the network should be sent to for routing.

From the WAN ( network I can ping AND

In other words, I can ping both the internet IP and LAN IP of the Router.

I cannot, however, ping any clients (ex.. on the LAN of the router.

On the ‘Advanced Routing’ page of the web setup, I have set the ‘Operating Mode’ to Router.

The Routing Table looks like this:
Destination LAN IP Subnet Mask Gateway Interface WAN (Internet) WAN (Internet) LAN & Wireless

Could you please help me get this configured so I can talk directly from the WAN to clients on the LAN. I want to be able to Ping any computer on the network from the network.

Thanks in advance...
