No worries, I must point out my experience with Airports other than the large open space variety with toothpaste tubes out front ready for takeoff is not that great.

But one thing that is important is that once you have configured the WAN port of the airport for staticIP and loaded the appropriate supplied addresses then sometimes the powering sequence between the modem and router is important, as the Surfboard can get a bit picky/cranky about how it collects the MAC address of the attached device (Airport in this case).

It's unlikely that you could ping the modems address through a router, as it won't have a route back to your subnet.

You can, except under some unique circumstances. It doesn't matter what IP range or subnet you are using for your router or local network. If this wasn't possible I wouldn't have suggested it.

Well look at that - it does work Smile Learn something new every day. The modem must be doing something pretty special in order to respond to that. Very cool.

The only case where it would matter what you were using for your LAN is if you were using, or anything else that encompassed
