[ALL] Actiontec V1000H Questions

Should I put the Actiontec in bridge mode to use with a Linksys e3000 network? I am using it now with the wireless (off on Actiontec and on on the Linksys) with the Linksys in the DMZ zone.

If it is in bridge mode how do I communicate with it? How do I get it out of bridge mode.

The Actiontec is at 192.168.1.254 and the Linksys is 192.168.1.1

Thanks

I believe all you would have to do is statically set your IP to the 192.168.1.x network and communicate directly. This will not work if you are behind your router that is also 192.168.1.x network.
You could connect directly, normally, if your router network was 192.168.2.x also.
I haven't done this as yet but I believe this is how it works. The primary block to communication is just that in bridge mode you wont have DHCP coming out of the actiontech to spoon fed PC's you put on its network.

Disable wireless, disable DHCP, change LAN settings on the Actiontec to 192.168.1.254 (if you havent changed your E3000 from 192.168.1.1), put the Actiontec in birdge mode.

You will be able to log into both the E3000 and the Actiontec by simply visiting the appropriate IP (.1/.254) without any additional network changes.
