Sponsored Links: I am stuck up. I was called to route a switch connection to a linksys router. A hyconnect modem was connected to a switch, and all the pc are linked to the switch with ips assigned automatically from the modem. Thats to say the modem is DHCP enabled. And every pc is browsing fine. The problem is, i tried connecting the router's wan port to the switch for wireless broadcast of the switch internet connection. I use automatic configuration dhcp with only the router's ip as 192.168.1.1, dhcp enabled at 192.168.1.100. Since this modem has the same dhcp settings, the router refuse to work. what do i do? Modem ipconfig from the computer: pc ip address 192.168.1.101 DHCP server: 192.168.1.254 GATEWAY: 192.168.1.254 DNS server : 192.168.1.254 these settings conflict with that of the router but both of them must be on the same subnet. I want to setup an AP to broadcast the switch internet as wireless. That modem has no fixed ip of its own neither DNS. like that of a satellite modem. The hyconnect is now acting as a primary router with dhcp. Please help.
