I do not have any combo cable modem plus router so I use the old setup which is:
Cable modem -> WAN port on Router -> things that use the home lan.
It's the usual setup and all the internal machines are on DHCP since I have no reason to hard code an address.
I'm setting up a new network and need to see if anyone has done the same. Comcast supplied their cable modem/router which supplies dhcp. Should I use the comcast cable modem dhcp and if so can I set up a static ip for the server/print server in it? Like dns...
Or should I disable the dhcp on the cable modem and configure dhcp/dns on the server? with a forwarded to the cable modem...
Thank you for any suggestions.
