Netopia R7100 with Cable modem
Posted on 2003-11-12
OK, my office has an "extra" Netopia R7100 SDSL router that I can have for free. I currently have a cable modem at home. I would like to know if it is possible to have it setup this way:
COAX cable into Cable Modem, Ethernet cable out of cable modem and into Netopia Router. Subnet from the netopia router to my network.
My question is also, how do I configure the Netopia router to look for a dynamic IP from the cable modem? Do I leave the IP at 0.0.0.0 and will that make it look for an IP dynamically? Also, what about DNS? Can I leave it at 0.0.0.0 and it will look for my ISP's DNS?
