This is weird I have a linksys wrt54g router with embarq DSL. please don't PWN me. my gateway IP is 192.168.2.2 and the routers gateway is 192.168.2.1, and DNS is 192.168.2.1. Why is my ISP on a 192.168.2.x?

my router is 192.168.1.1

what is 192.168.2.1? is that my DSL modem?

That's your gateway, that's the part of your network that everything goes to if you like... not knowing much about it myself it's hard to explain in simple terms but basically that's still part of your network. The part your packets hit before they get outside, basically.

ok I figured it out after my last post, I removed my router and pluged my computer into the DSL modem and got a 192.168.2.xxx IP this was just weird because on my router with verizon DSL, my parents verizon FIOS DSL, and friends Cox cable, it showed the gateway as a class A network, I move to las vegas and get embarq DSL here and its a 192.168.XXX.XXX just screamed at me. if I want to conect to my router for VPN, SSH, or something will the DSL modem pass that? are ports blocked/forwarded? if I try to conect from work do I use 192.168.2.1 or 71.48.***.*** I know the 192.168.*.* will not work. and if I tried to oh say nmap the 71.48.***.*** what would I get? or would the DSL modem block stuff like that? could I cut the end off my phone cable and put an RJ 45 on it? is the DSL modem just another router. I don't know but we'll find out stay tuned. :)

now that I'm home I looked at my DSL modem and noticed the model:EQ-660R ADSL Router. yes you may all call me NOOB :) I did a quick google for the 660 found all the info I'll ever need including it dosn't do port forwarding very well. has very strict NAT rules and you can put it into BRIDGE mode. So I logged in to 192.168.2.1 the modem/router turned it into a bridge, shutdown and restarted everything. logged into my linksys wrt54g andchecked my wan ip and its 70.***.***.*** nice clase A network.

Sorry to have wasted your time. lock and Delete this please
