Trying to get Linksys WRT300N and SD2008 working together.

by sidne / January 27, 2008 11:37 AM PST

Hi, I'm trying to update my home network. I did have an older wired Linksys router and switch set up and everything was working fine.

I wanted to add wireless capability to my network and add a switch with more wired ports.

I'm now using the Linksys WRT300N and an SD2008 switch. I have 2 desktop computers, 2 Tivos, and 2 other wired jacks for connections.

The 2 desktops are both able to access the Internet.
The 2 Tivos can connect to the Internet for updates.
The 2 desktops can see the Tivos on the network.
The 2 Tivos CANNOT see the desktops (though they can see each other).
The laptop won't connect to the Internet or the home network via either of the other 2 wired jacks.
Via the Linksys Advisor, I can see both desktops and both Tivos from my desktop. I CANNOT see the laptop (no matter which jack it's plugged into).

(I haven't even tried to set anything up wirelessly yet.)

I don't have any clues at all how to fix any of this. I've tried disconnecting everything, reconnecting, it, recycling, etc.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the help!
