sure, you definitely don't need my blessing.
I'm not real familiar, but I think that puts the modem in bridge mode. which I believe is more of a dsl thing. people with verizon dsl were having issues too without it in bridge mode. I'm sure Michael545 is right on track.
and fyi, the default ip for your modem is so you should be able to access it and turn off dhcp there.

PostPosted: Sun Mar 20, 2005 1:22 pm    Post subject: multiple DHCP servers Reply with quote Back to top

I actually have both my router and my RT31P2 running as DHCP servers. However, so long as they're not on the same domain, that shouldn't be an issue in getting Internet access. (and if they are on the same domain, shutting down DHCP is one option - the other is to change the domain of one of the routers).

i.e. The RT31P2 is allocating addresses on 192.168.15.x, which I use for the PCs hardwired to it, and my router (which has WiFi) is allocating addresses on 192.168.1.x to my kids PCs (different rooms - so they connect by WiFi)

i.e. So long as the RT31P2 has a static IP (that you can port forward to from the other router), on the domain that your router is using, and it's allocating addresses in a range that doesn't include the static IP address - you should be fine.

i.e. My router's DHCP allocates addresses with the last digit below 50 to hard-wired connections, and 100 and up to WiFi connections, so my RT31P2's static IP address is for it's connection, so won't be picked for DHCP by the router.

The RT31P2 is still for the PCs connected directly to it, (and they are obviously allocated IP addresses in the range 192.168.15.x)

I realise this will cause problems if you're using things like file and printer sharing. (i.e. The PCs connected to the RT31P2 can ping all the other PCs, but the PCs connected by WiFi can't see past the RT31P2 without some port forwarding, and even then, could only see one PC...) I have work on my PCs, so keeping the kids from doing things to them is a good thing in my book, but might not be suitable in your circumstances...

For anyone trying to make sense out of mike234's post above, when he says "domain" he really means "subnet".

I like the way you have your set up mike234 but I in fact I use file sharing on my network. I have a linksys 802.11-B wireless router & now the RT31P2 also. I have one wireless & two hardwired pcs on a network. I think having one router completely behind the other with all the pcs hooked to the back router would be really good security. That would be a pretty good fortress to try & hack through.I haven't really gotten into hooking the routers together yet. I am a computer science major & I think this will be a nice challenge to configure both to work in tandem; it will be one of those fun tech tinkering til you figure out type of things. Being on here though is cheating because all you have to do is read how someone else has already figured it out & it takes all the fun out of trying until you want to pull your hair out. And then, what's that in the bleak distance; a hint of hope & then you finally get it & feel like king kong for a second until you realize you are just screwing with a network. Seriously though, I had already realized I would need to turn DHCP off on one of the routers & make one a gateway. Im still getting ideas & trying to decide the best way..............

I started by trying to set my network up with the RT31P2 directly connected to my cable modem and then connect the rest of my network from one of router's ports but found that the limitations that the RT31P2 had did not allow me to do the things I needed.

One of the important items was controlling network access to the computers in my kids rooms by hour of the day. I found that the Linksys wrt54g had a usable method to limit access by mac address by hour of the day.

The wrt54g has been modified using the HyperWRT 2.0 Firmware ( This router is setup as my dhcp server and I have enable Qos and set the priority for one of the lan ports to high and set the upload bandwidth to 256 kbps. Then I have attached the RT31P2 to the lan port with the high priority.

I reconfigured the RT31P2 turning off dhcp and changed the default ip to one on my existing subnet but outside the dhcp range on my wrt54g. The cable from the wrt54g goes into one of the lan ports on the rt31p2. Then from one of the lan ports on the rt31p2 I have a cable going to the wan port. This allows me to connect to the rt31p2 to configure/view the web configuration page.

Everything works great!!!

have you set the router up for PPPoE with your username and pass at ?

Yes. I have but I continue to get the message to the effect "Router is not connected to the internet. Please try turning the modem off and then back on" when I am configuring the router through the CDROM set-up. Should I do as suggested by Michael545 and specify the IP on the modem (turn off the DHCP)? If so, does that mean the router stays on DHCP?


OK....I'm further along now. I've left the D-Link modem on as DHCP but put the router on a static IP just outside the modem's search range. I now have internet with both boxes linked together and I have a US-style dial tone on my phone instrument. Two problems, however: no phone light illuminated on the front of the router and I'm unable to complete a call (several rings then cuts off with loud beeping). I tried calling the Vonage phone number from my cell phone and was able to leave a message (viewable on my internet account as an incoming call but not retrievable). I've done two things and am waiting to verify effect---- disabled voice mail and went to 30 kbps on the Bandwidth Saver.

Any other ideas??? Thanks
