Hello I am enjoying the magic of watching the hours get sucked into the networking hole. Maybe someone can save me. I have a 2wire 2701-HGB modem on ATT. I have it as my router and modem over wifi and wired. I just bought the Time Capsule, and my plan is to have the TC be my router; as well as extend my network since there is crappy coverage in my house. I can get the TC to join a network; but when trying to create a network, things get messed up. There seem to be differing reports about whether you can use the TC to bridge the 2wire network. Something about WDS and whether 2Wire supports that. I'm under the impression that so long as I turn off the router capability in my 2wire; as well as the wireless; and connect the TC to the 2wire with an ethernet -- the TC can be my wireless router. And as a noob, what I mean when I say this is that I am thinking my TC will create the network, and talk to the modem, handout the IP addresses and whatnot...the 2wire will just provide the pipe out....ya? So. based on this I read all over the place and found these instructions http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r22561596-Trying-to-use-Bridged-2701HGB-with-Apple-Time-Capsule without much luck. I have reset the TC about 4 times, the same with the 2wire; going between messing with the TC settings first; or messing with the 2wire settings first. I can't seem to get the TC to act like a router, even when I do all the instructions on the DSL advice page. ANYWAY -- does any one here know FOR SURE whether... 1) you can have the 2wire as a regular modem; and use the TC as a router? 2) you can extend your 2wire network with a TC 3) whether the advice at http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r22561596-Trying-to-use-Bridged-2701HGB-with-Apple-Time-Capsule makes sense? last dumb question In Network preferences, on my macbook pro, my Airport is connected and has IP address X. My Ethernet is connected and has IP address Y. I don't understand that. Can I have two different IP addresses? thanks!
