Re: what can i do with my old 2wire dsl modem?

said by dakmatter:

My Cable modem only allocates one ip address
This will be the limit on devices that can access the internet
Are you certain that the cable modem can not be configured as a modem
said by dakmatter:

tried to disable dhcp but the wifi ip is still assigned by it
If you disable the 2wire dhcp server it will not allocate any tcp/ip info

If the device still has the 2wire tcp/ip info that may be caused by not releasing and renewing the tcp/ip info on the device a dhcp device will not give up it's valid tcp/ip info until the lease expires or a forced release/renew

Cable modem is the one that also has Voip included (Touchtone telephony modem) i cannot even access the thing.

Is it the ISP lease or the 2wire lease

I can't comment any more on this all I know is you have cable internet
said by dakmatter:

I can't see or know the ip info the device gets
The 2wire will give ip addresses starting with 192.168.1.64 and higher

There is not much to do to use the 2wire as a access point
There are two 2wire pages where the changes are made use the one you like
192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C06
192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09

On either page select Configure manually
The Router Address is 192.168.1.254
The Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0
You can use whatever router address and subnet mask you want
Make sure the Enable DHCP check mark box is empty
Then click the save or submit button to enable the changes
Below is a example of the area where the changes are made

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but it doesn't resolve the IP (limited or no connectivity)

Sounds like the 2wire is setup right for the wifi link

The laptop's wired adapter has a mac address
The laptop's wireless adapter has a mac address

The cable modem may be configured to give a ip address to only one mac address

You may be able to reboot the cable modem and it will give a ip address to a device with a different mac address

Sounds like you are done with this..............
I still think this will work within the limits of the internet connection
