Question about Computers & Internet
I use SBC Global dsl. I am trying to hook up a router to it. It will not work. Belkin says I need to "bridge" them, but SBC says that's not the problem. Can anyone help? Neither of them offer support on the modem...
You do not need to bridge your modem or router. I set up a linksys 4 port router with westel wire-speed and could web to both. You need to ensure that the modem is not handing out dhcp. you will also need to find out what the ip scheme is on the ethernet side of your modem. Most frequently it is 192.168.x.x You will then need to set up your router's WAN interface (so labeled) to be on the same scheme. Use DHCP on your router and you should be good to go.
I know I left out some details, but I don't want to type a book if you are comfortable digging on the internet or can take it from here.
