Thanks for your assistance.
I have obtained a fixed IP from the dsl provider. As for the modem, it works in transparent bridge and will not accept the IP. If I enable DHCP on the Tenor, do you think then that it will take the fixed IP?
Regarding the switch you mentioned, is it with a built-in router? Locally, we do not have Linksys models on sale and am on the lookout for a near match.
The tylenol really helps buddy 🙂
