    Default How do I use bridge mode and let WL Router handle dhcp

    I want to set my network up so that UT no longer controls the DHCP setting but instead only filters traffic to my Linksys wireless router. I want the router to handle everything and receive filtered traffic.

    Thanks

    I know how to set it up in bridge mode when installing. But I don't know how to get it to work. I just want my UT box to filter traffic, that's it. I'm also using a Linksys Wrt120N wireless router.

    I would highly discourage this type of configuration. The problem is all traffic will have the Wireless Router IP. You will not be able to manage traffic from different devices separately.

    If you really want to go forward with this just run the setup wizard again. The third steps asks if you want NAT or bridged mode.

    Config -> System -> Setup Wizard button

    Use your Linksys as an AP with DHCP.

    Cable Modem > UT Bridge mode > Linksys in AP mode > Clients

    Sorry, I didn't realize that till after I did it. But how can I have the router handle DHCP for the AP? I also use the switch, there for the UT and the router would both be handing out ip addresses.

    Right now I have the UT set up in router mode and I am having problems with my laptop seeing wired devices on my network and vice versa. Once again, my laptop can't connect to my wireless printer, either. If I just run everything off the router with out UT it works as it should.

    You don't, the linksys will only hand itself out as the default gateway, so you can't use that service to support a gateway beyond the Linksys itself. Which dictates converting UT into bridge mode, and letting the wireless clients go out without filtration. Or heck, even the wired clients since the only machines a UT bridge can filter are the machines behind it.

    I ended up buying a new 1 gigabit switch and an AP. No problem anymore, for some reason my router was causing problems on the network.

    Thank you for your help, though.
