Hello dwalt:Your router ip is 192.168.1.254. That should not be part of the dhcp range. That should be set to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.253.
Your subnet mask should be set to 255.255.255.0
What is the HAI ip address? It should be one of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.9 or you can get into issues with dhcp reservations. For example, if the HAI ip is 192.168.1.100 you should set your DHCP range to 192.168.1.101 to 192.168.1.253
That was my mistake thinking the the 3 254s. for the subnet mask. It is not 254, it as you say, 255. My careless mistake in an attempt to speedily answer you qestion as this, as are all technical challenges we have now a days, seem to take forever to resolve! The HAI address is 192.168.1.40 and as I said before it has been that, statically applied in the Linksys, since day one. My Arris is considered my router in my network which is why the linksys does not have that number. The WRT3200 is cascaded off of the ARRIS BWG210. It was all set up by HAI Star Dealers and as I I have said, it has work great for 15 years. Unfortunately, they are focusing of different products now, and I have yet to find a dealer in the area that wants service what I have.Plus, the rates have gotten nearly prohibitive, i wanted to try my luck on CT first. Not totally "out of the woods" yet, but hopefully soon. Just have to figure out now, who the video consoles will not come back on.
Thank you for your responses and help!
