2 Xbox Consoles on 1 network - NVG589 adding Linksys EA6300

NVG589 adding Linksys EA6300 – Uverse Internet – purpose is to have 2 Xbox Consoles on 1 network

 

Need “step by step” tutorial – step one turn on computer, step 2 connect Secondary router to??? And then???  Seriously … thought I knew what I was doing but apparently DO NOT!!!

 

I've read through many "IP Passthrough" threads and all that I've read give some version of changing the 'Device IPv4 Address'.  However, when I did this my NVG589 went crazy and lost internet for 24 hours!

 

  • What are the actual steps from start to finish to setup the ATT NVG589 – and then configure the secondary router to match up and not have conflicting IP address issues?

 

I need an extremely “dummed” down explanation because I’m a “dummed” down tech guy … ATT is making feel stupid.

I don't have a 589 on hand to reference.  Disable DHCP on your Linksys EA6300 to get it to work.   Then go to 192.168.1.254 and select the firewal, Applications, Pinholes and DMZ .  Select your router's IP, and set as the DMZ. No traffic from your router will hit the firewall. All will pass through.

make sure that your lynksys router is connected from our router to yours on an ethernet port, not the internet port.
