does anyone know if I can use a D-Link DI-604 as router only ? I do have a DSL modem that is used to connect to my ISP with a static IP address. This modem has a built-in swith and some networking features that I don't want to use. What I would like to do is to connect the DI-604 right behind my modem and use its routing/firewall features (i.e. not using the DI-604 to establish an Internet connection). Do I have to use a static IP on the D-link WAN port ?
Internet (Static External IP) Modem (Static Internal IP) (Static WAN IP) D-Link DI604 my home network
Any help would be appreciated.
