|I have a bank of 5 static IP address' from the cable company...|
I CURRENTLY have the 2wire 2701HG-S dsl modem set up for
Connection Type : Direct IP (DHCP or STATIC)
and have manually entered our information of
Then I have the ROUTER set up to
GET IP ADDRESS DYNAMICALLY FROM IP
Which is working great....
The DSL Modem give me the .31
The router give IP address' to all the computers 192.168.1.100-150
bla bla bla
HOWEVER, Here is my problem....
I want to put a SECOND ROUTER ONLINE and utilize my second static IP, my xx.xx.xx.32
to have a completely isolated second network (just think of it as a second company,
or just take it for fact that I really do need to use that second static IP)
So, I know I need to transfer the IP control to the ROUTER !!!
I KNOW that in the ROUTER, that I need to set it up as
"USE STATIC" and put the
IN THE ROUTER
BUT - - - WHAT DO I DO TO THE DSL MODEM
(how do I tell the DSL Modem, let the ROUTER ask for the IP address)
Options on the "2wire 2701HG-S" include:
Direct IP (DHCP or STATIC)
I think I want to switch the DSL MODEM to PPPoE
Is that right ????
I'm working in a business, and want to be as prepared as possible, and NOT
guess, and fumble around......
Thanks for any assistance !
