How do I connect a Linksys Router to a Broadxent 8120 configured as a Bridge?
Posted on 2004-11-06
I upgraded my ADSL servce and they provisioned me with a new ADSl Broadxent 8120 router. It works perfectly as a router with a static IP address but is not well designed to host a webserver.
After a lot of reserch on the Net I discovered that it is recommended to reconfigure the Broadxent as a bridge and then put a router (line a Linksys 4 port) behind the bridge so that port forwarding becomes feasible.
I have successfully reconfigured the Broadxent as Bridge. I pluged the Broadxent static IP port (#1) into the WAN port of the Linksys. There does not seem to be any handshake between teh two devices and I cannot ping the bridge.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can access the Net through my Lan via the Linksys router and Broadxent bridge?
