Cable Modem and Wireless Modem/Router Combo Help
by WO_isdabomb - 2/11/10 1:17 AM
I've got a problem, currently I am subscribed to cable broadband that's connected to a wired cable modem. I've also got a Wireless/modem router combo which Doesn't have a WAN port - Only 4 LAN ports and a phone line input for ADSL. I'd like to access the internet wirelessly but the only way to connect the cable modem to the Wireless modem/router is through a CAT5 cable.
From past experience I know that I can turn a wireless router into a access point by disabling DHCP and setting the LAN IP to a IP which is in the DHCP range of the modem. I'm wondering is that possible in this case? Also if so, how do i find out the DHCP range of the cable modem? (since I have no idea how to access it - seems to be different from a normal ADSL modem) If this set up doesn't work (either because it's a cable modem or it's a modem/router combo), what would make it work so that I can get internet wirelessly?
I know this is a lot to read, but if someone can just provide website for me to read up on this then I can go study it myself.
Thank you in advance
