My goal is to disable the routing capabilities of the modem/router combo and use my Router as the Gateway, DNS, DHCP, DDNS, etc server on my network. According to my ISP, because my service includes a wireless feature, I must have the wireless radio enabled. It's just the way their system is set up to give me a promotional price.
My ISP's solution was to simply hook the two up and disable the wireless AP on the modem, the router report I have already attemped to follow the steps shown here. Problem is, my Router displays it's WAN IP Address as a local 192.168 address. From what I understand, the modem's NAT and Firewall features must still apply, meaning if I want to forward ports I would have to forward all ports on the Motorola to the router and then from the router to my local network devices.
I have run into the following problems:
- Disabling NAPT mode returns to enabled on power cycle
- Disabling the wireless (Under Wireless->Basic->Wireless->Enable/disable returns to enabled on power cycle.
- Disabling DHCP causes me not to log into the router on power cycle
- The RG Passthrough Enable/Disable option does not exist.
What do I need to do to make the modem/router a dumb modem?
