    My ISP modem says:
    Local IP address
    Subnet mask
    DHCP Server: Enabled
    Connection mode: DHCP
    Starting IP address:
    Ending IP address:
    Connected devices: Eth-Switch LAN (2) Netgear WNDR4000 Router

    My Router says:
    Router Information
    IP address
    DHCP: On

    Internet Port
    IP address:
    connection DHCP
    IP subnet mask:
    Gateway IP address:
    RIP Direction: Both
    RIP Version: Diabled
    Attached devices: HP computer
    Use Router as a DHCP Server:yes
    Starting IP address:
    Ending IP address:
