I have a 2Wire Internet gateway with DHCP running. I have added a NetGear WNDR4500 to provide Wireless N and network attached storage (USB via WNDR4500). I have a media server connected to the 2Wire and I have a client on the Wireless N, which cannot access the media server since on a different subnet (10.x.x.x vs. 192.x.x.x). I tried turning off the "Use router as DHCP Server" but now I cannot get the clients connected to the WNDR4500 to get any IP address. Is it possible to have a client connected to WNDR4500 obtain DHCP from the 2Wire? Or is this an invalid connection?
Steps taken: 1. Assigned static IP on 2Wire for WNDR4500 mac address 2. Unchecked "Use router as DHCP Server" on WNDR4500 LAN Setup (Advanced) 3. Power cycled WNDR4500
Results: 1. WNDR4500 shows IP address as assigned 2. LAN Setup shows IP Address as 10.0.0.1 (not sure what this means - unable to change to value in the 2Wire range without getting WAN Subnet conflict error)
