Dealing with a multiple public IP's.
Posted on 2006-05-23
I'm completely confused with a multiple public IP's. I have 13 usable public IP's from ISP. There's Netopia 4622XL-T T1 VPN Router (Covad), connected to NETGEAR GSM7224 Layer 2 Managed Gigabit Switch. So now Netopia is acting as DHCP server. If I connect, let's say 5 desktops, to the switch, each one has a public IP assigned by Netopia. It looks like the switch itself doesn't exist. So the question: Can I use the switch as another router? What I'd like to get, is to create a few local networks (like 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1, etc), using each public IP. There's nothing about it on the Netgear support page. Please, help.
