How do I connect Netgear FVS318 via NetComm NB6Plus Router for internet access

Hi Experts,

I am upgrading my home internet by replacing the firewall / router.  The NB6 plus is in place and working, and I am trying to configure the new Netgear Prosafe FVS318N to connect via this router to the internet.  The FVS318 is behaving okay otherwise, its just the internet connection.

The most important settings are:
NB6 Modem:
- Broadband username and password configured, internet connection pppoe
- NB6 configured with DHCP server giving the FVS318N an IP address of 192.168.1.2 (which has been accepted by the FVS318N)
- NB6 protocol "Bridge VC MUX" with VPI/VCI 8/35
- DSL port enabled (it would have to be to connect to the internet)

Netgear FV318N Prosafe router firewall:
- LAN settings working okay
- WAN set for NAT Routing
- Broadband ISP settings - does not require a login, no other configuration

I'm a bit unclear.  You are wanting to remove the NB6 and use only the FV318N?

If you want to connect the FV318N WAN to the NB6 LAN then perhaps you need to make sure that the subnet 192.168.1.0 between the two boxes is *different* from the subnet on the FV318N LAN side.  Is it?  That's what the NAT is involved in dealing with so you need it that way.

the NB6 is in service already with a different router, and I'm upgrading

the FV318 WAN side has taken the address given by the NB6 (192.168.1.2) and the LAN of the FV318 is like 192.168.99.xx so it's different already

So then what isn't working?
You only have said "the internet connection" but not whether it's the FV318 that can't access the internet or computers on the LAN.  Which is it?

The FV318 probably has some diagnostic or test capability that will allow it to ping IP addresses on the internet.  Can it?

Is there maybe a DNS issue?  When you ping a URL, do you get an IP address back?

Good questions,

The FV318 wasn't pinging URLs, then I plugged a laptop into the NB6, which told me the internet connection wasn't active.  
Then I reconfigured (via wizard) the NB6 and the internet works via the FV318.

so your questions have solved the problem!  

I thought the NB6 would have the same config, and that would let me fall back to the old system if I wanted, but that's not the case.  Next I have to attack the VPN dial-in :-)
