Please can someone advise/help me -
I wish to replace my BT 2wire adsl modem/router device with a better model.
The present device has built in modem that connects dynamically and then allows me to configure my static IP block as an additional public network to be routed through to the lan ports.
This then shows traffic has coming and going from the staic IP.
Most hardware companies are now pushing a separate modem and then router solution to do this.
I am worried about using separate devices in case the static IP address is not used correctly (I have a mail server on it).
Would I configure the dsl modem to use a dynamic address and then set my static block in the router behind it OR would I set the dsl modem with my static IP block router address and then program the router with the static block of addresses.
I am worried about purchasing the wrong equipment for the job.
Does anyone know how it would work.
thanks in advance
