I need a little more help connecting my network at home (this is a follow up from http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Broadband/Q_28518404.html#a40322973
1. I have a Belkin VOIP modem that I would like to set up in the communications hub of my home.
2 I would like to connect other Ethernet ports throughout the home to this point.
2. I have a Netgear D6200 wireless modem that I would like to set up in my lounge area so it is close to where all the wireless devices
3 I would like to have all the units connect to the same network
The advice I was give was:
put your belkin modem in gateway mode.
Your Wireless router will act as your router/switch (usually 4 ports)
Plug your ethernet devices that require more speed into your router. Much faster speed.
Your router will provide addresses to your devices, all on same network.
Can someone help me figure out what I need to do to put my modem into Gateway mode. I am an amateur at this and have no idea where to look. The manual for my unit is: http://www.belkin.com/pyramid/documents/External/f1pi242exau%20manual.pdf
