Setting up Cisco Router behind the AT&T 3801HGV Router
Before I got new U-Verse service (Internet & TV) 2 weeks ago, I had a home network set up with a Cisco Linksys E2500 dual-band router. I have a Dell desktop PC running Windows 7 and 10 wireless devices.
I followed another forum members directions pertaining to bridging the 2Wire router and the Cisco router, changing the IP address of the 2Wire router and turning off the wireless function. I set these up so that the 2Wire router was behind the Cisco router. Everything worked just the way I intended until today.
There was a power failure at my home yesterday from an outside source. The 2Wire router and the Cisco router returned to their factory settings for the most part.
Now, I cannot change the 2Wire router's IP address. I have tried it several times and cannot get the router to respond.
There are other parts of the 2Wire router that will not let me change (system password)
Has there been any system changes that would effct the 2Wire router? Should I reset the 2Wire router to it's factory settings and start again?
Thank you for your help.
