Good afternoon, all. I have been successfully using an 857W router in Pure RFC1483 Bridge Mode for some months. I would really like to be able to get more of the functions of this router working, so I can get my "money's worth" and eliminate a few other pieces of equipment in the process. I have been unsuccessful getting anything else to work. Here is my ISP situation (addresses altered, of course): I have 8 non-contiguous IP addresses as part of a /24 block
184.108.40.206 through 220.127.116.11
Gateway = 18.104.22.168
If possible, I would like to hold 22.214.171.124 at the router and use it to NAT for DHCP (on the WLAN as well). Then, I would like to have the rest of the block (126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52) bridged to the LAN ports for use in other parts of my network. Is this possible to achieve?
Second, I would like to be able to use this router as an IPv6 tunnel endpoint, and DHCPv6 service. I've read that it is not possible on this router, and I've also read that it is possible with the right IOS load, but I am not sure. Comments?
I can provide config listings as necessary, though right now I have nothing set except a simple pure bridge configuration. Thanks for your assistance!
