Want to push my home network behind a WRVS4400N DMZ

Hello all,

     I've got a pretty typical setup with my DSL modem hooked to my WRT54GS, which is the gateway for my home network, both wired and not.   I have received a block of static IP's from my ISP and I now want to build a DMZ in "front" of my home network.  Here's what I envision:



        DSL Modem


        WRVS4400N V.2  (no NAT, no DHCP, intrusion detection and firewall only) static IP on both sides of the router


         DMZ (all static IP)


        WRT54GS (static IP facing the DMZ, NAT, DHCP, etc behind the router)

Does this look like a good design?  Is there anything I need to watch for to "push" my current home lan behind my new DMZ?  I'll have wireless (3 different SSID's) at each router (including the DSL modem which will have firewall, nat, etc turned off).

Thanks for the help.

     - Jeff

Jeff based on your description and setup diagram that looks just fine.  With the wrt54g on the dmz with the firewall on you will be just fine.
