I just moved into a new place and the cable company supplied me with a motorola sbg6580 gateway and I have a netgear wnr3500l router with dd-wrt. because of location I have computers plugged into both devices (htpc and game consoles in the gateway, desktops in the netgear). my question is how would i configure the gateway and router so everything sits on a single network AND the netgear with dd-wrt handling all the heavy lifting (port forwarding mostly)
For a wired solution:
Internet > Motorola > Netgear > Switch > PC's, game console, htpc etc
Make sure you have a switch that has enough ports to support all your devices +1 designated to connecting to the Netgear, and maybe even have some spare ports for expanding the network (optional but recommended). Also make sure the switch has gigabit ports.
