    If you have an existing network, give the wireless router, the next available address on the same network...

    i.e. if the ip address on computer 1 is 10.1.1.1; make the router address 10.1.1.2 (with the same subnet mask as the existing network devices)

    Also, setup dhcp on the router with a pool of addresses on the same network (10.1.1.3 through 10.1.1.10)

    Hope this helps

    yes it must. you can try 192.168.1.2. Also most routers have dhcp enabled so you cna try this. Dhcp makes the router automatically assign IP addreses.
