Although I am able to use that combo modem/router, the N speed was 1/2 of what it should be. BH controls that unit, I can set very little. The techs that install it have a P/W that allows them to set it up, but the P/W given me doesn't allow full configuration. Some settings I can change will be reset by BH I found out, like SSID.
Irv, the problem is not the connection the problem is it's either or or, the connection is fine but my linksys gateway is 192.168.1.1 the problem is that i can't see the laptop on the network because the motorola is setup for 192.168.0.1 and when i asked TW if i could change it from 0 to 1 they flat out said NO.
From your description, it appears that is what has been done? In that case, the Surfboard is just a modem. You can't set anything on it. It provides a WAN address to your router, and you can do what you please with your router. The Surfboard doesn't put out a wireless signal at all.
I can setup a few things on it but nothing that will help me in the long run. As far as the wireless goes your right, it doesn't and to me that's BS because if you are "renting" the modem/router all of the features should be available to you.
The confusion I have is you said the Surfboard didn't do wireless, and I assume that is the $7.50 charge to enable that? Without that enabled you've made the LinkSys into an Access Point I take it and you CAN get wireless? If this is the case, what is your problem? Leave the IP Address of the gateway as is.
As i described i can't get on my network here at the house, i see my wife's computer just fine because i have it setup through the modem so therefore both desktops are on the same IP and i'll be damned if i pay them another $7.50 just for wireless. AT&T didn't charge my mom for having it turn on for her.
It sounds like your Surfboard isn't in Bridge mode? It is still giving you a LAN address vs. a WAN address, no?
no it is not bridge that's the main problem because if it was i would be able to see the network just fine.
p.s. sorry i am not any good qouting here yet.
