I’ve logged onto the DSL modem (an Actiontec C1000A DSL modem) and see that it has the IP address but I’m wondering if I have to assign the IP address to it? Pretty confident you don’t have to do anything else to use a static IP address as assigned by your ISP. A static IP is typically associated with your physical connection—and perhaps even the ...

I’m a CenturyLink customer and oday I added a static IP address to our account. I’ve logged onto the DSL modem (an Actiontec C1000A DSL modem) and see that it has the IP address but I’m wondering if I have to assign the IP address to it? Technically, that means it's already assigned (and probably usable). With most ISPs, the "static address" does not ...

There could be several cases here. Assuming that network 10.20.30.X has mask of 255.255.255.0 and the network between the modem and router also has 255.255.255.0 netmask, then if no other restrictions take place you should be able to reach the modem configuration panel trough your web browser just by typing it's ip. But if the modem has been given to you by ...

Your problem is that you have connected your VDSL modem to WAN port. Connect it to a normal LAN port and give it an IP address from your LAN range 10.20.30.0/255.255.255.0, e.g. 10.20.30.2. Also change your router to AP mode see https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1005259. That would work for you, unless you need to use some special features of the router like ...

What you will have to look for: IPs associated to ports of the router itself: These settings should help you set your modem to another IP Routing rules: Defines what IPs your computer will ask for help to reach an IP on another network. For instance, use 10.20.30.1 to reach 10.20.31.0/24. If you can't change your modem's IP, you will need to add a rule ...

Kind of a tricky question here, but here goes. If you are a business account then no. Business accounts are assigned static WAN IP's so no change in router/modem will alter this. If you are a residential account if you want to change your WAN IP sometimes all you have to do is unplug your modem for 10 - 15 minutes and when you plug it back in the WAN IP ...

From my point of view, we should not change the whole network to accommodate a NAS. Why not just connect your computer and the NAS with UTP Cat 5e directly and configure the IP address of your computer with 192.168.1.10/24. You should be able to access the NAS after that. Then change the IP address of the NAS to subnet 192.168.0.0/24 and put it back to your ...
