No TV Just Coax only.

I was not getting good wireless range from ActionTec MI424-WR so I made it a bridge and used Linksys N router by following the instruction from http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r17679150-Howto-make-Actiontec-MI424WR-a-network-bridge


Linksys riuter is working fine. I want to use my ActionTec router for my PC(wired) as I am putting Linksys router downstairs through CAT5 that I got installed today.


I can not understand the following instruction:


 The only way to access the MI424-WR after this setup is to directly connect a computer to it (via ethernet) and using a static 192.168.1.* IP address.



What value is * here. Please let me know the instructions to connect wired PC  to ActionTec where ActionTec is now a bridge.

You're only bridging to increase the wireless signal... you are essentially still connecting to the internet via your actiontec router.  You can still connect wired via the actiontec (make sure u turn the wireless off) I think u are asking for the router address which is

While I do not the answer to your question, yet..

If you had at least three routers, and they all had at least two LAN (ethernet ports), this is an example of what you could do.

I do not have the Westell 327w router, but that trick for my three routers that I have worked. 🙂
