Cycle power on Modem to get it to release DHCP and assign new lease to
new port when swapping Routers. Never press Reset on the Modem!!!
Make sure Routers has NAT/Router features and Firewall enabled, Bridge
mode won't work.
DNS proxying on Router enabled and all connected devices use Router IP
as Gateway and DNS
Just make sure the WAN ethernet port is DHCP (not PPoE etc) and
Automatic for DNS & Gateway.
The LAN can be Static 192.168.mmm.xxx or DHCP or DHCP with mac reserved IPs.
There are no user settings whatsoever on the Modem.
Make sure the Modem USB port is not used.
