Will a Surfboard 5100 server as a router? It has a DHCP server built in, but two computers connected through a switch are not able to get IP addresses. I read somewhere that the Surfboard is not really a router unless the cable is down. The one machine that is work is pulling a public IP. The other machine is not able to get an IP address ("server unreachable.")
At one point, the cable was, in fact, down, and the working machine pulled a private IP address.
What's going on with this unit?
