I thought I'd ask some where where people know what's going on and
respond, rather than the "24 hour" turnaround USWest help dept.
Here's my question.
I got a block of static IP numbers from US West and am trying to figure out one
thing. They gave me a set that they defined as follows:
Of your 8 leased addresses, 3 are reserved for the network and 5 are
for you to assign to individual PCs, routers, or servers. The 8
addresses you leased are as follows and will need to be assigned in the
IP Address field of each clients/hosts TCP/IP stack:
xx.xxx.x19.184 This is the network identifier.
xx.xxx.x19.185 User assignable.
xx.xxx.x19.186 User assignable.
xx.xxx.x19.187 User assignable.
xx.xxx.x19.188 User assignable.
xx.xxx.x19.189 User assignable.
xx.xxx.x19.190 This is used for routing.
xx.xxx.x19.191 This address is for broadcasts.
You will need to make the following configuration changes to your TCP/IP
stacks on the machines that you assign the previous addresses to:
255.255.255.248 Subnet Mask
xx.xxx.x19.190 Default Gateway
22.214.171.124 Primary DNS
126.96.36.199 Secondary DNS
(I added the x's myself)
My question are these: Is the 190 IP, which is used for routing, the
address of the DSL modem, or is it the IP of the WAN side? Also, is
the modem in bridging mode?
Thanks in advance for any help.
