said by WalterH:Option number one
My question is this. How do I configure the Westell 6100 modem and the Linksys WRT610N router so that the router is providing DHCP LAN in the 192.168.1.xxx range? By the way, I am in TX so Verizon uses a DHCP (not PPPoE) network.
#1 Have the modem combo handle the public IP.
#2 Have the DHCP Server Enabled in the modem combo enabled if this is desired.
#3 While the Linksys is not connected to the modem combo:
a) In the Linksys go to Setup -> Basic Setup
b) Where it says DHCP Server
, select Disabled
c) Press Save Settings
#4 Connect one of the free/available/unoccupied LAN Port(s) of the Linksys to the Westell's LAN port.
* Not Double NATTED and the modem combo is handling the public IP.OR Option number two
#1 In the Westell go to System Monitoring -> Gateway Status
#2 Record down the WAN MAC Address (might be called the Broadband MAC Address), there as you will need it.
#3 Put the modem combo into bridge mode as directed in the FAQ, including disabling the DHCP Server in the modem combo.
#4 Connect the Linksys's WAN/Internet OR To Modem port to the Westell's LAN port.
#5 In the Linksys go to Setup Basic -> Setup
#6 Make sure it is setup to use DHCP.
#7 In the Linksys go to Setup -> MAC Address Clone
#8 Select Enabled
#9 Now type in that WAN (or Broadband) MAC Address that you recorded earlier at step 2 of option 2.
#10 Press Save Settings
* Not Double NATTED and the modem combo is not setup to handle the public IP.--
