I have a Compaq 2404 WBR 802.11b wireless router.
Current configuration ========================================== I have a cable modem and a maximum of 2 dhcp client addressess allowed from my cable ISP. I have 4 computers, only 1 of which has a wireless adaptor. I don't have enough addresses.
Currently, 2 computers are being passed dhcp addresses from the ISP. The wireless router is not yet configured but when it is, it will also need a dhcp address. However, if I can configure it correctly, it will be the only device receiving a dhcp client address.
The cable modem is attached to a hub. The hub is attached to the wbr at one of the 3 non-WAN ports on the wbr (I assume the wbr is hardwired such that the WAN port needs to separately connected to the cable modem, but I haven't done that yet -- due to distance from the cable modem I was hoping to be able to route without using that WAN port).
Problem ========================================== When I turn on dhcp at the wbr it never routes to/from any of the wired computers out to the Internet. However, it does -- in testing -- route a wireless computer to the Internet.
What I want ========================================== I want to receive DHCP addresses on my wired network, from the wbr. I assume I'll have to give the wbr 1 address from the ISP. I'd like the remainder of the addresses -- for 4 computers -- to come from the wbr. How do I get the wbr to route wired computers to the Internet?
Any suggestions to accomplish my goal?
