Hello! Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com; I am Russell H., an Expert here at JustAnswer.com, and I will do what I can to answer your question as well as it can be answered.
How have you been trying to connect the Linksys router to the FIOS modem box?
NAT is Network Address Translation.
On the Linksys... can you log in to the 'admin' for the router, and get the Setup screen, first of all?
If so, I can instruct you how to change NAT settings for this model, if they can be changed.
Yes, you need the IP address.
disconnect from wireless if your computer is connected to it.
(You may resume this case afterward at
Then connect your computer with a Ethernet cable, to a common port on the router (not the Internet port. One of the numbered 1-4 or 1-5 ports will do.)
Then open a Command Prompt window.
Then enter this command
and press RETURN on your keyboard, once. Get the 'Default Gateway' address, which should be four numbers separated by . (dots.)
Then enter that Default Gateway address in a browser, and you should get the prompt or popup for login to the router.
for the username. Do you have the password ***** the router? if not, try the default passwords, either 'blank' i.e. no password, no characters, nothing, or else
which are common default passwords for the admin account that allows Setup of your router.
A blank page, with no error message?
Did you enter the address like this?:
or the like?
If not, it might not have accessed the router properly. But, you may need to restart the computer you will configure the router with, before getting the Default Gateway from the router and its connection. And then entering the address for the Default Gateway (once you have determined it after disconnecting the regular internet access and restarted the computer to clear the regular internet access's IP address info out) and see if that works properly.
Look for 'NAT' or Network Address Translation.
I'm looking up where exactly to find that, in your model (the e3000), and will post results within 10 minutes, I hope.
Right - I found it too just now.
Let me know, yes.
