Linksys with 5 static ips
Posted on 2004-11-11
I just got a business dsl on a location, bellsouth sent me the dsl router and everything works fine. But now want to have that service at home where we have fiber, meaing there is no need for a dsl modem......I have set up Linksys BFSr41 router to be in router mode instead of gateway, set up the PPoe and on the LAN ip configured the gateway for the external range... then on the computers connected to the router i set the static external Ips....I get internet and when i do a whatismyip.com i get the right ip, which shows that is not natting....the problem is that I cannot do a windows update or have problems connecting to email server....is it cause this is a cheap linksys and is not made to handle this type or routing or is it a setting im missing somewhere. I will really appreciated your help. to summarize this is the setup on the linksys.... WAN=ppoe log in, LAN=static gateway IP, = computer on lan use their static ip with thei gateway as the linksys router.
