Re: New install and existing router It can be done and there are many post about it. I though wouldn't recommend it! I followed the instructions from other posters on here and it caused problems. I enabled DMZ plus mode for my own router from the 2wire gateway....All ports on the inside 2wire gateway didn't work, just my own router. Let me repeat....all I did was enable the DMZ plus, that is what was advised by other users....I lost tv on all of my receivers and had to have a tech come out. They had to replace my gateway. I wouldn't recommend to use your router. I went out and bought a true 'switch' since I needed more than the 4 Ethernet ports and it was plug and play!
I would suspect that crash58's gateway problem was probably due to "infant mortality", no putting it in the DMZ.
