    I have been using a wrt54gs router with no problems for serverla years
    it was a version 1.1. It crocked last night so went out and picked up
    a new version 6.0 wrt54g everthing simply unplugged from the old
    plugged into the new router. I prefer using static IPs on the 4
    computers on my home LAN. On the older wrt54 I just had to go to the
    Advanced Routing and add the info click on save and was done. I try
    that on the new router and when I click to save I get this message
    "May be default route already exists"

    I am now lost.. I can not figure out what the erro message is telling
    me and can not set staic IP addresses. Any ideas? What am I doing
    wrong as I say nothign was changed and the router does work and uses
    the staic IP as set in each computer but I would like ot set this up
    as the old router was thanks

    Did you shut down your pc and/or modem between disconnecting the old router
    and plugging in the new one? Sounds like it's reading your old router info,
    doesn't it?
