I seem to be having a problem with DHCP working on my network. Here is how I have it setup. I have cable modem going into cisco 1700(ip -192.168.0.2) setup with DHCP. Then I have fast ethernet going into a netgear wireless router (ip - 192.168.0.1) All computers are either plugged into the multiple ports on the netgear or via wireless on the netgear. I have DHCP turned off on the netgear. So as you can imagine the default gateway for all comp's is 192.168.0.2. I turned on dhcp on the cisco and setup a decent range. However any of the computers I connect either physical or wireless will not get a dynamic ip assigned. I have set static. Normally this wouldn't be a problem however more and more laptops are around so when I bring them back to this network, I always have to remember to set a static to connect. My question, is there something I should be doing on the netgear to pass this type of traffic to the cisco?? Is the netgear blocking the dhcp requests from getting to the cisco?
