Re: [modem/router] How to access 6100G's interface while connect

The netgear internet port and the westell ethernet port will find each other and allow the pppoe to work

While I know how to get into my Westell: If I followed your directions, would a Public Static IP work too?

Router config(s), right now..

a) Westell 6100F (with only one LAN port) at 192.168.1.1 (in bridge mode).

b) Linksys WRT54G running tomato firmware at 192.168.0.1

Thanks.

What I posted is only for dsl that uses pppoe
The number of ethernet ports on the modem does not matter
The modem and router must have unique ip's that are in the same subnet

Ok.

Why only for PPPoE (Not for DHCP or Static Public IP) ?

Can you go more techical about how that works ?

Thanks.

Because pppoe traffic cannot mingle with tcp/ip and dhcp traffic
