If your computer if connected to a LAN (router) that is upstream of the DVG ATA, you will be required to temporarily connect your computer to the DVG as described below and modify some settings as described in Accessing the DVG ATA from WAN.

192.168.15.1 is the default LAN IP address of the DVG. This should not really be changed.. unless there is a specific numbering scheme for your LAN.

If you cannot login to the IP address of the DVG - either the default IP, or one that you have set, you will have to do a HARD RESET to restore the DVG ATA to its default factory settings. The reasons for this would be that someone has changed the default IP address, or this new setting has been lost or forgotten.

Warning:
Please do not modify any DVG ATA settings unless you understand the impact on your VOIP and/or Internet service.

    •Ensure your *computer* has either:

    • A static IP address of 192.168.15.x (i.e. 192.168.15.2 with the computer's gateway set to 192.168.15.1)
      OR
    • DHCP enabled
      See DHCP on XP for an example on how to do this... search Google for other OSes or brands...

    NOTE: the DVG ATA has *LAN DHCP* setup by default

  1. Verify your cables and jacks.

  2. Plug your computer into the ETHERNET port on the DVG (or through a LAN that is connected to that port). Verify that your computer now has an IP address in the DVG's subnet (default: 192.168.15.x).

    If your computer was using DHCP and previously plugged into another router/modem, depending on your OS (Windows 98/XP.., Linux, etc), you might have do to a DHCP Release/Renew when you plug your computer into the DVG. This will refresh the IP address since it is now on the DVG's subnet. Restarting your computer will also get a new DHCP IP address.

  3. If needed at this point, connect the DVG to the Internet through the WAN port.

  4. Open up your favorite WEB browser.

  5. Type in the default DVG LAN address (URL): 192.168.15.1
    (or the modified LAN address that you may have set in the DVG).

  6. A DVG login screen will appear; click on the login prompt.

  7. The Userid and Password is available on a search of the TBB Portal Forums, and has been included with some of the Primus documentation originally sent with the DVG ATA. Please do not post this information on a public Forum.

  8. The first time you login to the DVG ATA, verify the DVG's MAC address.

Warning:
Please do not modify any DVG ATA settings unless you understand the impact on your VOIP and/or Internet service.
