How do I get my ZoneCD to work with Comcast Cable modem static IP
Posted on 2007-11-29
I'm trying to setup a hot spot for our customers that visit us. I found ZoneCD from a previous post so I wanted to give it a try. I was able to make it work at home without any major trouble. At home I'm using a Linksys cable modem and a Linksys WRT54G wireless router (DHCP off). The ZoneCD machine has the 2 NICS in it.
So once I go the hang of the setup process I brought it all to work and went through the setup there but was unable to get it to work.
My setup at work is a little different from my home setup. At work I have a static IP and I'm using the cable modem from Comcast. (SMC8013WG). It has 4 LAN ports so I thought it would be plug and play with the ZoneCD. And I'm using the Linksys WRT54G wireless router for my access point.
During the boot of the ZoneCD you have the option of using DHCP or static for eth0. I tried both and neither worked. I even tried switching the cables.
I hooked up my laptop to one of the open ports (wired) on the modem and after making several changes to my laptop network settings, I was able to get internet to my laptop. So I tried to use those same settings on the ZoneCD setup but no luck.
So will this modem (SMC8013WG) work with ZoneCD and what settings should I be looking for?
Should the IP of eth0 on the ZoneCD be an internal or external?
Static IP - 70.89.2.XXX (router/modem IP?)
Gateway - same as above
Subnet - 255.255.255.0 ??
DNS - 126.96.36.199
DNS - 188.8.131.52
I'm not very well versed in network setups so I apologize for not providing enough info in my question...
Thanks for any help or advice.
