Configuring LAN IP Settings

The LAN IP Setup menu allows configuration of LAN IP services such as DHCP and RIP. These features can be found under the Advanced heading in the Main Menu of the browser interface.

The modem router is shipped preconfigured to use private IP addresses on the LAN side, and to act as a DHCP server. The modem router's default LAN IP configuration is:

These addresses are part of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)-designated private address range for use in private networks, and should be suitable in most applications. If your network has a requirement to use a different IP addressing scheme, you can make those changes in this menu.

The LAN TCP/IP Setup parameters are:

- When set to Both or Out Only, the modem router will broadcast its routing table periodically.
- When set to Both or In Only, it will incorporate the RIP information that it receives.
- When set to None, it will not send any RIP packets and will ignore any RIP packets received.
- RIP-1 is universally supported. RIP-1 is probably adequate for most networks, unless you have an unusual network setup.
- RIP-2 carries more information. Both RIP-2B and RIP-2M send the routing data in RIP-2 format.
