I have a 2wire router and also a Cisco e1000 router. How can I disable the router function on the 2wire and connect it to the Cisco e1000?

DSL CABLE ---> 2WIRE ROUTER ---> Cisco E1000 router

How can I disable the router on the 2Wire, and how I connect the 2Wire Router to the Cisco e1000 router so the Cisco will be the router?

Do I need to connect a cable from the 2Wire to the "WAN" port of the Cisco router? OR to the ports 1, 2, 3 OR 4 of the Cisco router?

Thank you!

I noticed your other 2Wire question.

Is this something you installed originally?  Or a router/gateway provided by the ISP?


Some will allow the use of another gateway but most I've seen require you register the MAC of the new device to them - FYI

The 2Wire is a DSL modem and wireless router, but I want to use the Cisco E1000 as a Wireless router, so I need to turn off the routing functions on the 2Wire router first. I don't know how to do it. This is the first question.

Second question: then I need to connect the 2Wire router to the Cisco Router by cable. Do I connect the cable to the "Internet" port of the Cisco router? or to any of the ports 1, 2, 3 or 4 ?  Of course then I need to enter the username and password of my ISP on the PPPoE section of the Cisco router.

Thank you!

Call your ISP and have them bridge the DSL modem.
This turns it into a Layer-2 bridge.
Then you can configure your E1000 WAN interface for the public IP your ISP gives you.
