    I have a verizon 327w by westell, and a dual band aebs, i want to be able to use the aebs to do all the ip adresses and be able to forward ports (not sure how to do this ?)

    i guess my main question is how to do this? how do i turn my 327w into bringe mode and then make the aebs the main modem/router and just get the data from the westell?

    if i do this will the ports outa the back of my westell 327w atill be active to plug stuff into?

    thanks for any and all help.

    i can read, and have read a few manuals but reading it, and understanding it is harder for me unless someone more experienced can break it all down for me in laymans terms.

    thanks

    I think you are confused. You cannot turn the AEBS into a modem, because it is a router. A modem takes the incoming signal from your ISP and converts it into a format your computer can make sense out of. The AEBS does not have this capability, as it relies on the demodulated signal from the modem.

    I have no idea. "Cisco 3000" yields several different search results. Despite that, I still have no idea what you want to even do- you seem to be working off a major misconception. Buying another router won't magically turn a router into a modem. Your AEBS is a router that works just fine.
