DPC3925 is a cable modem. Can you tell us why you want to connect it to the fiber residential gateway? You can use it as a switch.

Hi,

 

I got no wireless router, this will cisco DPC3925 wireless router will provide for me. So I want to use it as a wireless router, but.... it's host port is coaxial not RJ45. My fiber modem cannot connect to coaxial port. 

 

When you say I can use the wireless modem as a switch. Do you mean I can connect the internet source to any of the 4 RJ45 port?

Are you using the wireless gateway provided by StarHub? It already has WiFi capability. If you want second wireless you can use your cisco.Turn off DHCP service on your cisco. Plug any RJ45 of cisco to RJ45 of residential gateway.

What hardware did StarHub provide you? Tell us the model. Or are you going for direct ONT?

I am a bit confused because I am not sure what is your set up. If you are not doing direct ONT starhub would have given you a RG. It has WiFi capability. That is why we need to know what is the device you are trying to connect the cisco to. If you are using a Huawei or D-Link RG you can disable the DHCP server on the Cisco and just plug it into the LAN ports. You will be able to connect to the Cisco wireless. When you say plugging in does not work, is it you cannot see the wireless network or you can see and connect to the wireless network but cannot access internet?
