Router Setup for 2 Lans/one ADSL connection
Posted on 2004-03-31
I need to setup two small business LAN's off one ADSL connection. I currently have one setup with the router setup with PPoE. I have two IP addresses from the ISP. With the first being the modems address currently.
Here's what I don't understand. I would assume in the setup I want to achieve the DSL modem would have a DHCP address from the ISP. Company 1's router would have a static IP of we will say 105 and the other companys router a static IP of 106. In this scenario static IP would be setup on the routers but under the static IP option of the Linksys wireless broadband router there is no user name and password which my ISP requires. I can't really try all this out until this weekend so I guess I'm looking more for the conceptual setup than trouble shooting.
Do I have the setup correct in my mind and if so how does the Username password thing work out? The only option on the router that gives me all the options I would expect is PPTP which I don't think would be correct in this scenario but heck what do I know.
thanks in advance
