Anyone knows if there is another address I can use to access a brand new WRT54g router? My network already has 192.168.1.1 as a firewall and I don't want to unplug my network just to configure a wireless router.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.
No. The router will only have a single IP address.
Just unplug your workstation from the network and attach to the WRT54g. It'll take you a few minutes to do the configuration, then you can re-connect to the production network.
Keep in mind that you'll want to turn off DHCP on the 54g and assign it a different IP address, lest it wreak havoc on your network when it gets attached.
