Ok, I'm having huge troubles, I am getting cable and I am trying to find out how to bridge the cable modem to my 9630. A diagram would probably be better to understand what I'm trying to do.

I need to shut off the adsl option of the Belkin router and have it so that it re-routes internet traffic to one of the ethernet port, the Cable modem. Whilst having its own DHCP range so that all the pc's that are connecting to the belkin are 192.168.2.x where x is a number between 2-255.

It is simple what I am asking for, my old router had this function, just didn't have an inbuilt adsl modem, so it was made to connect to another modem via ethernet. I have been changing settings in the belkin trying to connect it to my old DSL-302g modem and nothing I do can seem to get it the way I want.

So really, get one port from the belkin, turn it into an uplink/stack port so it can connect to the cable modem.

I have used several Belkin ADSL routers and have never seen anyway to enable one of the lan ports as a wan port so to pass nat routing, the only wan port is the adsl port which cannot be made into a ethernet port.

Thank you, I will hunt down my old linksys router, and use that for the mean time. Thank you for the help. The guy a the Belkin Global support center was absolutely useless :)

Cheers

Been there, done that, you get better support if you email the Aus help, then you get someone in Sydney who is not reading from a script to reply, I have found the aus support to be very good and knowledgable.

Haha sweet man, I'll give them an email. Until then, does anyone have a resonably proced router that will do the job im looking for, and possibly with DMZ as I will be running a server.

I have found these TP-Links to work quite well, infact they seem more reliable than many of the other big name brands. Ascent is a good supplier too.
