1) Any recommended resources for a TOTAL beginner besides the wiki? (I bought this router because I want to learn.)
2) I am trying to setup a hEX S (RB760iGS) between a Motorola MB8600 cable modem (Comcast Xfinity) and a windows based PC. (Then I will learn/add more.)
From what I read the router's default router configuration should work, but it's not and I don't know why. (Simple setup, no port bonding)
The modem can have one device connected to it and it dynamically allocates a network address and DNS. The computer works when connected directly to the modem.
When I connect the router's Ethernet1 to the modem and Ethernet2 to the computer, it doesn't work. The computer connects to the router. (I can use WInBox & webfig) The computer is not connecting to the modem/internet. Error message indicates it's not getting the expected DNS response. Selecting the update option in the router's configuration also gives a DNS error when it tries to check for the newest version available. (I have to swap wires and re-login, to switch between searching for the answer online and connecting to the router.)
