BT Voyager 205/ Linksys WRT54GS

Specs: Windows XP
I have my home PC connected to the internet via a USB connection to my BT Voyager 205 ADSL Router. I have my Linksys WRT54GS wireless connected to the BT Voyager 205 via the RJ-45 cable. I have recently purchased an azurewave wireless access port to connect my hi-fe system to my wirless network. I can broadcast music from any of the systems connected wirelessly to the azurewave. I can't connect from my home PC (USB) though which is a problem as it has all our music on it.

From the wireless network, I can ping and open the diagnostics page for the BT Voyager 205 and for the Linksys WRT54GS.

From my home PC, I can only access the BT Voyager 205 - it cant seem to see the Linsys router.

I want to know how to change the gateway etc so that my Home PC will be able to access the wireless network... this would be:

Home PC -> USB -> BT Voyager -> Linksys -> wirless network

Why did you purchase the Azurewave when the Linksys is already wireless? You have change the setup to:
BT Voyager > Linksys > All other devices including the PC. The WAN port of the Linksys gets connected to the Voyager by cat5. The other devices can be wireless or connected by cat5.

The gateway for all the devices would be and the gateway for the Linksys would be whatever IP BT gives it.

The azurewave allows music to be streamed over the wireless network and plugs into the amplifier of the hi-fi. I only have a USB port on my home PC

If you have to add the Azurewave to the setup, then it goes after the Linksys.

BT > Linksys > Azurewave > All other devices unless you still have to connect your PC to the Linksys. Use a cat5 cable for that. You don't need USB now. I would use static IP addresses. DHCP can't be running on 2 devices on the same subnet.

Hi Guapo,

Thanks for your efforts and time.

I can ONLY connect my home pc to my BT voyager via the USB - I do not have a network card on the PC. Therefore, I need to find a way to allow the PC to be able to see the wireless network via the BT router.

If my wireless network can see the BT router, doesn't it stand to reason that the BT Router should be able to see the wireless network...

Am I just wasting my time here and should I just invest in a network card for the PC?

I think a network card would make things a lot easier. If you have to money, buy it.
