I have been following your posts, I have a question about a setup. So I have the u-verse 3800 series router and I had wanted to run just a regular router without wireless behind it. The beginning of this post I am posting to now, I think answered it but if I am asking again, say so. I was looking to get an 800 series to practice on for my CCNA. I was going to go with a wireless but there would be no point correct if my only objective is to get my device to the internet so I don't conflict with the 2wire so my wife will still have access if I mess up something? Technically it would just be another IP address running on the 194.168.1.x network and still run behind the router of the 2wire. So would I have to turn off my setting for the firewall and others that might conflict? Apparently when the house was wired for phones cat-5e was used, so that's fine. I was going to have an ethernet ran from the LAN port in the back of the 2wire to the wall that runs directly to my office, from the wall another ethernet cable to the router LAN?, then on to me via another cable? I could try to make a visio diagram if it makes it easier to understand. I just wanted a wired connection to the web, but keep the wifi up on the 2 wire JUST incase I have to redo the cisco router for whatever reason?
Thank you for your time,
