Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Are you connecting the router to a cable modem that has a single ethernet port?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no , the cable modem has 6 ethernet ports
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Cable Modem ---> Fiber connection to the Operator
Cable Modem ----> e1200 ( 4 Ports) , plus WLAN ---> Second Cable Modem

Thanks for that. You sure that router is able to go into bridge mode?

Linksys doesn't list that model here: http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=143751

I was looking at this emulator: http://ui.linksys.com/E1200/2.0.00/bridge.htm

and it looks like the e1200, except for v1.0 does have a bridge mode setting.

What is the hardware you have connected on the far end?

Expert:  Byron replied 9 months ago.

Do you know the IP address of the e1200 so you can log in to it and configure the wireless?
