I am attempting to setup the 5100 modem to the FVS318 router and I am unsure how to do it. I have many links to various websites that say anything from "the router and modem both share the same 192.168.0.1 web interface--this needs to change" along with "the router needs to be on a different subnet" and "the modem needs to be in bridge mode" --a lot of pieces of info that make sense, but being a bit of a novice, arent making complete sense to me--I guess the order of these fixes, and the susequent setup scheme of the IP addressing and DNS servers (do i input the DNS servers on the modem, or router--do I just point the router to the modem address for DNS) things like that which I am a bit lost on. I will add the links below to see if anyone who is interested 500 points can help me with this problem.
here is from one site:
SBC/Ameritech DSL uses PPPoE as the link protocol.
If the modem is configured for Bridged Mode (PPPoE not used) an internet connection is not possible with SBC/Ameritech DSL.
Bridged Mode (PPPoE not used) changes the link protocol to RFC1483 (RFC 2684B)
Other SBC regions don't use PPPoE exclusively as SBC/Ameritech does.
The modem's GUI can be accessed from behind a router when set for "PPP is on the modem"
When connecting the 5100b to a router or firewall use the 2 options listed below.
Let the modem do the PPP and issue a public IP to wan/internet port of router
Enter your username and password in the modem
The option of PPP is on the modem must be selected on the modem
The option of Yes, use public IP address must be selected on the modem
Configure the router for DHCP on the wan/internet port
Let your router do the PPPoE
The option of PPP is on the computer must be selected on the modem
Configure the router for PPPoE on the wan/internet port.
