Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I just got a 2wire 2700HG-B router and Im trying to connect my cisco 871 router to it, everytime I connect the ethernet cable from the cisco router to the 2700hg-b router i lose dsl signal and the router reboots, Im unable to establish connection b/w both routers. my network is as followed dsl line comes to 2700 router and from ethernet cable from port 1 is been sent to wan port on cisco router. I need the cisco router because of the VPN that gets assign to it.
Do you have any funky subnets for your Cisco router? Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.
Basically the easiest way to do this is to set a dedicated IP for the 2Wire router on the Cisoo router. Then make them stay on the same subnet, but give an IP range for your Cisco router, like 1-50 or something. If you give the 2Wire router IP .51 for instance, then give the Wifi users on the 2Wire IP range from .52-75 or something.
Make the 2Wire router only use wifi and not serve DHCP addresses. Then you setup the 2Wire router to get its info from the Cisco router.
I searched and there is no howto out there for doing this with a Cisco router. However, here is one I used to setup a similar scenario with a Netgear router. It worked. If you are able to translate a bit, it might work for you:
Here is another article:
Let me know if you are able to work through this. You need to give the 2wire router a static IP and you need to NOT use it for wired connections, and not use it to serve DHCP settings.
