Hello. I'm new to this board. I just flashed my Fon router with the RC7 version of the firmware. Here's my dilemma.
My internet connection is DSL. The DSL modem is upstairs and all the computer in the house run off a wired connection via the Zoom ADSL modem.
I have one connection leading downstairs that is wired. I have several things that need a network connection (i.e. desktop PC and XBOX). I have a switch set up downstairs to split the only network connection to these machines.
I was wondering how would I set up the Fon wireless router to pick up a network connection off the switch.
One last thing is the ADSL modem assigns IP addresses in the 10.x.x.x range. I tried hooking up the Fon to the switch. I could see the wireless signal via a laptop, but was unable to connect to it.
Connect a PC directly into the F*nera and access it's web interface, then change router IP to whatever the IP address your modem is, +1. (ie. if modem IP: 10.4.4.1, then F*n IP: 10.4.4.2) Then try connecting it to the network and accessing it normally at that address you just set it to. _________________ WRT54GL 1.1 v24 preSP2 r14896 | RNX-GX4 v24 preSP2 r14929 | 2x AR430W v24 (both bricked ATM) | 2x F*n2100 Legend Pre4.5U & v24 preSP2 r13525
