- Surfboard SB5100i connected via a cable modem wire to Blueyonder (Virgin Media).
- NetGear WGR614 with ADSL wireless modem.
I was planning on using the wireless capabilities of the NetGear in conjunction with the Surfboard cable modem.
The plan was to have the NetGear router plugged into the the Surfboard (using LAN port 1) and have the cable service automatically detect the MAC address of the NetGear and allow it onto the network. So far so good - I have tested this and it works. If I plug a cable into LAN port 2 I can use the internet.
The problem is when using Wireless. I have setup the NetGear as a DHCP server to issue addresses over the wireless connection. The problem is that I am unable to use the internet over wireless, only through LAN port 2.
Its been a long time since I setup a cable modem connection and even a network with two switches(!), what am I doing wrong? Any advice?
