How to run a router/switch behind a Netopia 4 port router
Posted on 2003-03-06
My previous router, a Flowpoint, recently died and with it went the set-up information. It died completely. I purchased a Netgear FVS318 8 port ADSL VPN/Firewall and switch. Ameritech would not provide me with the info (or support)to properly set up the the new Netopia ADSL modem I also purchased so I had to buy their Netopia Caymen 3000 series 4 port gateway pre-configured. I would still like to use the Netgear 8 port router/switch behind it. I have tried to set the wan side ip address of the Netgear router to the Netopia Caymen and let the Netgear router handle the DHCP duties by pointing the client pc's gateways to the Netgear router to no avail. I also tried to leave the DCHP duties to the Netopia gateway and point all client pcs to the the Netopia to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
