What is going on here? How can I get the router to "patch" the internet through the wireless connection? (It worked fine together with a DSL modem just yesterday). My suspicion is it might be that the two DHCP services (from the wireless router and the modem) are somehow conflicting with each other. What combination of settings will let me use the internet through the wireless connection?
I'd be grateful for any help.
Let me know if you figure this out. I can get internet service (Comcast) out of my SB6120 in two ways.
1. Connect a computer directly to the modem (firmware version SB612X-188.8.131.52-SCM03-NOSH).
2. Connect the modem to my router (Buffalo WHR-HP-G454) through the WAN port and set my router to bridge mode (turning off the router's DHCP server).
I imagine form what you've said that I might get some results by connecting the modem to the router through one of the LAN ports, even if I did not put the router in bridge mode, but what I really want is to turn off the modem's (unconfigurable) DHCP server and have it just work as a modem and leave the DHCP duties to my router.
Does anybody know how to do that or to make any configuration changes at all on this modem? I can go to the "configuration" page at 192.168.100.1, but all that does is tell me what the confguration is, not allow me to make any changes.
