    Well, before I went to try that, I lost access to my Netgear, dammit. Now I can't get back into it, and I've tried several different IP addresses to see if they worked; they didn't.

    Ahh yes


    The Netgear router has to have an IP assigned manually for the method you are doing. Once you have the 'Use Router as DHCP Server' unchecked on the Netgear you will need to assign a static IP to the Netgear within the range of IP address' that your 2Wire Gateway hands out but not an IP that is in use with another device on your network, keep in mind whatever you change the IP to on the Netgear will be the new IP that you will need to enter in to access the settings later on.

    That's all moot now, because for some reason I can't get access to it.

    I think you should, you need to have DHCP turned off in the Netgear settings if the 2Wire Gateway will be handing out IPs to your devices, you don't want both trying to do that as it would cause conflicts.

    Well, like I said, all this is moot right now. I don't know why, but I can't get back into the Netgear, even wirelessly. I have no idea what happened, either.

    You mentioned something about 10.x.x.x IP range and then before that I thought you were using 192.x.x.x??? :confused:

    I was. 192 was the default, but for some reason, when I was able to get back into my Netgear, up popped a message that said "your router's IP address has been changed to 10.0.0.1 to avoid conflicts with other devices." So, I used that one. I attempted to make the changes mentioned above, but my router sat there updating for quite some time, then timed out, and now I can't get back into it. At all.

    Does the 2Wire hand out 10.x.x.x or 192.x.x.x range IP address to your devices? Netgear's are usually setup by default to hand out 192.x.x.x range

    According to a look at the 2Wire's IPs, it says the ranges for connected devices is 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.253

    Since you have made changes to the Netgear you will most likely have to connect a Ethernet cable directly to the Netgear and assign your PC a manual IP address to regain access to the settings, as with DHCP server disabled your Netgear will no longer automatically give you an IP.

    Well, I tried connecting an ethernet cable directly to my Netgear, but I still can't gain access to it.

    The article linked earlier in the thread states:

    "The DHCP server used by the router that is not the wireless router/access point should not have the IP address of the wireless router/access point in its DHCP range of IP pool (to avoid accidentally giving out a duplicate IP address)."

    Do you have an IP address assigned? With DHCP off it would not automatically assign one now.

    Yes, I know. That doesn't seem to be the issue. After all, when it was changed to 10.0.0.1, I had access (then lost it for some reason). BTW, that configuration schematic to which you refer isn't exactly an accurate comparison, as it deals with two standalone routers and a modem. The 2Wire is a modem/router in one.

    An IP address assigned to what?

    The computer you tried to connect directly to the Netgear would need a manual IP address assigned as one would not be assigned automatic with DHCP turned off. If you Run>Cmd ipconfig you can see if your getting an IP not in the 169.x.x.x range.

    Also, since you changed it to 10.0.0.1 you are typing that in instead of 192.168.1.1 to try to access correct?

    My PC's IP address seems to be 192.168.1.4

    And I didn't change the Netgear's IP address to 10.0.01; it changed it itself per the above message I quoted.

    WTF is going on here? Now, suddenly without warning, I type in 10.0.0.1 and have my router's access back. So, what do I need to do to wrap this thing up finally?

    Since it was changed that is now what you will have to type into the address bar to access it always.
    If you want to you can change it to something else under Advanced section>LAN Setup>LAN TCP/IP Setup
