Linksys router, switches, & win 2003

I am trying to set up a linksys router, replacing the current cisco router. The linksys router will then route to two switches and the switches go to the two NIC ports on the server. The server is a Windows Server 2003 R2 and i have DHCP enabled and setup. DHCP is currently setup with two scopes for the two switches. The current router is failing so im trying to do an easy swap but i dont have access to it inside. So, here's what i have done on the Linksys router. I have put in the WAN IP, Subnet Mask, and Gateway as given to me by my ISP. Then, i disabled DHCP. I switched the router ip to 192.168.1.100 (thats the router ip on the cisco router). Once i swap the router and restart the server, i dont get ip's to any of the computers. Any ideas?

What's the reason for the 2 scopes, 2 NICs & 2 switches? Something tells me that the Cisco router had a routing protocol enabled to handle the 2 subnets. A linksys out of the box only handles one. In your case, that would be 192.168.1.xxx.

What happens if you disable the NIC that's not on that subnet?

Are both scopes on the same subnet?

Why would you have a public wireless scope and connection to the server? That would give the public access to your server. No security concerns?

Having two nics in the server in the same subnet is pointless and can cause you serious routing issues because of loops.

I doubt the linksys will accomplish what the cisco is doing. Cisco routers can have multiple subnet interfaces on the same interface. The linksys can't do that.

Why is it you don't have access to the cisco?

The wifi is separate from the work network.
I dont have access to the Cisco ASA because i do not have the ASDM launcher 6.2 i need for it. And telnet to it seems to be blocked by the Cisco ASA as well.
If you know where i could download the ASDM Launcher, then that would just solve all my problems, lol. Thanks.

get a laptop, rollover cable and connect to the serial port on the cisco router. You use hyperterm. You will need to know the logon name and password


Public net should be in a different subnet and not connected to your server at all or securely divided from the network by vlans
