I am sure that I am making a basic error but I just cannot find the solution hence reaching out here.
Currently I have to plug the incoming internet feed in to the LAN bridged ports as I cannot get internet access when it plugged into the Linksys WRT3200ACM port. My ISP provider is Vodaphone and at the moment has the Firewall on but DHCP off.
What I want to achieve to put Vodaphone router into Exposed Host / DMZ mode (which it supports), plug the cable from that into the WAN port of the Linksys, have the firewall working correctly and setup port forwarding. However I am falling at the first hurdle of getting internet access and it driving me mad.
I have not posted in a forum before so not sure what you need to help. I have added some files requested in other post.
Why bother with the ISP router though?
A much more elegant solution would be to get a standalone modem like the Draytek Vigor and then configure everything at the router level as PPPoE
I'm with BSkyB and do this. Sky actually hide your user and pass on their router but the crack was revealed years ago...
No it is not correct. address can be 1.2 and gateway must be 1.1
Also you'll need to change the IP of the lan interface, as it is the same and you'll have a conflict. Change it to 192.168.100.1 for example.
Thanks for all the help and hope you folks have a little more patients with me.
My concern is getting this wrong losing connection to the Linksys router (192.168.1.2).
I also have a load API call to the Linksys openwrt router to do things like automate turning kids wifi off etc.
Does the following look correct?
The WAN setting could be the following (set IP address to 1.6 to avoid conflict with LAN / lynksys router which has a static lease of 192.168.1.2)
OK, have been doing more research and guess my problem is that whalst I am trying to set the LAN to 192.168.2.1, there are a lot static dns leases set up with 192.168.1.x. Also there is a lot already setup based on these IP's
It goes to be a significant amount of time to rework everything
Can I set the WAN to 192.168.2.2 ?
In this case does the gateway still stay 192.168.1.1 or does it need to be 192.168.2.1
Hope you folks can guide me the last step as this is driving me nuts.
