Re: [AB] Tried to get shaw to bridge the DPC3825 modem/router
Just setup your 2nd router as an access point, if that's what you are really after. Turn wireless off on the Cisco/Shaw Modem and let it do DHCP and DNS, and setup the 2nd as a static IP and let it just do the wireless. One of the biggest drawbacks on the Cisco and SMC is the wireless in them is crap, along with a few other things. Could be worse, could be on Telus and supplied with an Actiontec that won't even let you change your DHCP scope.
You will not be able to make the D-Link 825 to act as the router, unless you get your modem into bridge mode.
Set the LAN IP to be 192.168.0.2 Turn off DHCP and connect the LAN 1 of the D-Link to LAN 1 on the Shaw modem
