hi, i have a Huawei Echolife HG520b adsl modem router that came with my broadband conecction from my isp (TalkTalk) I also have a Netgear WNDR3300 that i would like to add to the network as the main router that all the computers connect to and the HG520b to act as just the modem. So the network map would look like this;

LINE----HG520b-----WNDR3300-----COMPUTERS

I have tried various things to achieve this but i cant get it to work, what steps do i need to take and what settings do i need to configure in each router?

There are a couple things you could do.


One, plug the ouput from the Huawei into the Internet/WAN port of the Netgear.
Two, go into the Netgear, and set the Internet/WAN type as DHCP, then the Netgear will pull the address from the Huawei and you should be set.
