Default A True WAP no DHCP

I have a lan with 20+ computers on it. They all have Static IPs. I need to add a WAP to the LAN for the Laptops that are around. The subnet we are in is 192.168.1.0 - 255. So I use 192.168.1.1-150 for static. I want to add a WAP Device to server via DHCP 192.168.1.151-171 for the few laptops that are around. I have a Linksys WRT54G v5 but I don't know if it will do that. I cant seem to figure out how.
So thats why I am here.
Please advise.
Cheers

[A True WAP no DHCP]

Does this mean that your present LAN has a DHCP server or that it doesn't have a DHCP server and you wish the WRT54G to provide one for your wireless connection?

If you already have one.
1.Set the WRT54G an IP address within your present allocation of static IP's.
2.Disable DHCP in the WRT54G.
3.Connect your present LAN to one of the LAN ports of the WRT54G.

If you don't have a DHCP server don't disable the DHCP in the WRT54G and set your DHCP range in the WRT54G.

I do not use a DHCP sever inside our LAN. The Wifi Router will provide DHCP for the Laptops Alone. I need the router to simply provide DHCP severing only the address in a certain range and only via the WAP not the LAN (cable) side.

1.Set the WRT54G to have a local IP address within your present allocation of static IP's.
2.Enable DHCP in the WRT54G. Set DHCP start 192.168.1.151 with 20 clients.
3.Connect your present LAN to one of the LAN (not WAN) ports of the WRT54G.

Where it says "Network Setup" "Router IP"

I also had to change the WAD side address from Automatic to Static and assign it 192.168.1.149 even though there is no cable plugged into it just so I could add a gateway there of 192.168.1.1 so the computer whose gateway was assigned on the lan side would get routed to 192.168.1.1 after they hit the router @ 192.168.1.150
Cheers and thanks

That didn't make sense. The LAN gateway will not point to the WAN gateway??? If you try you'll usualy get an error saying the LAN subnet can not match the WAN subnet.

This is more like it. You can't. I've tried to do this in the past and failed and here I am again hoping a newer WRT1960N would allow me to do this but here we are. A big fat NOGO.

The best you can do is to turn off DHCP and setup a DHCP server somewhere else.

You just can't get some routers to NOT route. Go figure!
