Hi,

 

I recently noticed how my westell 6100g modem provided by verizon is also a router.

 

This causes some problems since I have the thing connected to an apple airport extreme router which I connect all my devices to.

 

I thought I had the problem solved by making the airport a bridge and for the most part I did. Except for one thing.I have an old printer which cannot seem to get an ip through dhcp unless I assign one using a dhcp reservation. 

 

Here is my question: Can I either

 

1. Turn the router portion of the westell modem off so it just provides a direct connection. THAT way I can use the apple router functionality instead? (I'd rather do this)

 

2. Assign a dhcp reservation in the westell modem so my printer works.
