Question about Arris SURFboard SB4200 Modem
I had 1 pc connected directly to the Surfboard got the internet fine but purchased the Airstation as I wish to use my laptop on the network.
The problem is, if I connect the surfboard to the WAN port on the AirStation, I dont get any connectivity, but can share files within the network, if I connect the ethernet of the surfboard to one of the LAN ports I can get the internet on both the PC and laptop but then lose the ability of a network.
The airstation keeping wanting to connect via PPPOe rather than picking up an address via the surfboard when via the WAN port, how can i set this up so i have both an internal network and the internet?
If it were me, i would return the airstation. then i would buy a linksys WRT54G. They are about 50 dollars. Then use that to set up your wireless network and you will find it quite easy.
