Running a Small Business Server 2012 Essentials with 7 users
We also have several NVA security camera systems. After creating a few passthroughs that would not work properly we would call Comcast support, support would do some changes and the passthroughs would work just fine. I'm not sure what they did to get it to work, I assume they simple allowed certain ports.
A couple months ago I had to add another passthrough but again it would not work. I called support and this time they could not get the passthrough to work properly so they recommended I use my own Router, Comcast support turned the Comcast router into bridging mode and I installed a Linksys LRT224 and configured all my passthroughts. Everything worked just fine. My new Linksys router would answer to 192.168.1.1
DHCP on the Linksys router is turned off and my SBS2012 server is doing DHCP and DNS.
Today I'm having network issues, if I go to http://192.168.1.1
the Comcast router comes up and not my Linksys.
I called Comcast support and all they can tell me is that my Comcast router is still in Bridge mode. I removed the Linksys and now my Network is running ok but of course none of my passthroughs are working.
Question if my Comcast router was set to bridge mode wouldn't I lose the internal address 192.168.1.1?
Any suggestions are appricated
