xterra2000 and Katz,
I have total of 4 puters connecting to the router. Two of those are of my roommate running Linux server connecting to the 4 port switch before going to the router. The other two are mine, each runs directly to the router.
All in all, I did not have to assign anything specifically. I just update to the latest firmware and set the totol # of computers allowed to connect through the router (it's on the linksys setting page, 4th column DHCP.......check if the # allowed to connect matches or exceed total # of puters connected to the router.
For the Epods, I just set it to auto detect DHCP.
Sorry if this doesn't help, I'm a novice in networking world.
Hope you'all can solve this prob soon.
BTW, the surfing experience is still slow due to the nature of processor, for those people who expect an improvement......don't expect too much.
