Re: DSL Moden and wireless router hook up

Butch Bussen

I was on sprint when I put in my node. I had the same problem. I put the modem in bridge mode, then set up the router with proper name and password to log me in. I also set up the router to stay connected. I do not have a static ip, they want another ten bucks for that.

I think I need a Static IP address form Qwest to put this in Bridge.
Because the dsl modem needs a User name and password.

proper port forwarding rules and you should be back in business.

What ISP are you with?
What brand and model modem?

Here is a link to help you configure your new router with IRLP.

I bought a Apple Airport Extreme wireless router with the IP of to replace the 5 port switch and to be wireless only on my
Macbook. The Apple Airport has 3 ports on the back to hook up other
computers without being wireless.

One port will be for the IRLP.

I do not know for the life of me how to map all this together.
The DSL modem is with all the ports open for the IRLP
computer that is

What IP address needs to see what? and were do the open ports need to be?

Thanks for all your help.
