 +If the modem can be "​bridged"​ (see below) then Gargoyle can do the whole job. If not, then the existing ISP supplied Router/​Modem will still handle the ISP connection, and Gargoyle will cover the rest (firewall, DHCP, wifi, quotas, QoS, etc etc). In this case you need to create **two** network segments. 
 + 
 +The **first network segment** comprises the Modem LAN port, a physical cable, and the Gargoyle WAN port. That's it! All devices on this segment will have static IP addresses like 192.168.**0**.XXX (ie ModemLAN=192.168.**0**.1 and GargoyleWAN=192.168.**0**.2). If you need to access the Modem settings, then you can physically connect a Modem LAN port to a PC with static IP = 192.168.**0**.3 
 + 
 +The **second network segment** will comprise the Gargoyle LAN ports (and wifi) and all of your other devices. All devices on this segment will have IP addresses like 192.168.**1**.XXX (ie GargoyleLAN=192.168.**1**.1) assigned by DHCP.
