Belkin (or your router) -
Set the WAN port for DHCP
Set your router management IP on a new network 10.10.10.50 for example (anything except the DHCP range of the 3801, which is usually 192.168.1.x)
Create a DHCP range on the same network
I've been following this thread because I have the same issue. Not to hijack the OP but I haven't seen any movement on the topic and I might need a little more hand holding to set mine up.
I have a Dir-655 D-Link router and the same At&T 2wire gateway.
I want to use my own router behind the Gateway and reduce the gateway's role to just a modem because I've configured my DIR-655 with quite a few static IP's for household appliances, Qos for others, port forwarding for remote access for some devices and i'll hate to set all that up again on the AT&T gateway.
Is there any way i can avoid having to Set my router management IP on a new network
since I have some preconfigured static IP's on my network?--
