Hi there,you want to place

Hi there,

you want to place the 1700 router in your LAN behind your Actiontec router, did I get this right?

So, you need to configure your router interface connected to the Actiontec with IP network 192.168.1.0 (i.e. IP address 192.168.1.2) and a static default route. If you want to use DNS from your Cisco 1700 in your internal networks, you can configure the router as a DNS server as well. Here is an example:

 

interface g0/0

ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0

no shutdown

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1

ip dns server

ip name-server 192.168.1.1

 

Additionally, you need to configure static routes on the Actiontec router for your internal networks used behind the Cisco 1700, pointing to the 192.68.1.2 as next-hop address. Also, your Actiontec needs to do NAT to connect its 192.168.1.0 network to an external public network.

 

Hope that helped.

Cheers, Dennis
