Title: Fixed IP address with DW7000 ?
Post by lasky73 on May 11th, 2006 at 7:56pm
Direcway DW7000. Ok its the professional business vers and it suposed to have a static ip. But no one can connect to it. I have conntacted Direcway and they are no help at all.  So this is what it have the dish connected to the modem then that is connected to a linksys wireless router the router is directly connected to  computer 1 and the the wireless is connected to computer 2. The Ip they gave me to use doesnt work and if i go to a find ip site on the net it gives me something completley different. No ip i find will let another computer connect to me. All i want to do is let another computer directly conncet to me using an ip. Help please.

Unlike the 6000 systems on  static IP, the 7000 series does a NAT within itsself from your say 67.xx.xx.xx ip to 192.168.xx private address. The 192 ip range is private and not routable.
A seldom documented fact is, you need to configure the 1st device to your dway modem to have static ip of your dway ip + 1
example, for me to do a dway VPN on my 7700 system:
Connect my computer to dway modem direct via cat5, go into ethernet connection properties, configure tcpip properties to connect to dway ip +1, with correct subnet, with gatewat of dway 67.xx.xx.xx ip.
If that doesn't make sense, go over to broadbandreports website/direcway, look at VPN connection info.

In general,

Private IP address space is: - - -
plus - reserved for Automatic Private IP Addressing.

Should the previous message refer to 192.168.xx.xx ?
I hestitate to barge in and amend the above post..

Best regards, Eric ?

I was thinking 192, but the fingers weren't willing. Feel free to edit any time if I typo something in the future, or if I just get something wrong, no offense will be taken. I check in most every day to help and learn. Dont want to steer anyone wrong by mistake.
