This documentation will help you setup your Netopia R910 to use the 5 IP package, but may apply to other Netopia routers as well. Note that the R910 does not have a built in DSL modem.
1. Select "Easy Setup"
2. Change Enable PPP over Ethernet to On
3. Select Next Screen
4. Make sure that Address Translation Enabled is set to Yes and IP Addressing is set to Numbered
5. Local WAN IP Address should be set to the IP you would receive if you were using a DSL Modem and Enternet. Generally seems to be the highest IP in your block. Use
the appropriate subnet mask.
6. Remote IP Address is the address of your gateway. You can get this from Enternet as well.
7. PPP Authentication needs to be set to CHAP
8. Send Host Name is your login name
9. Send Secret is your password
10. Select Next Screen"
11. "Ethernet IP Address" defaults to 192.168.1.1 you can leave it set as is unless you intend to use another range, use the appropriate subnet mask.
12. Domain name is "dsl.chgil.ameritech.net"
13. Enter whatever primary and secondary DSN server you like
14. "Default IP Gateway" is the same IP as you entered in step 6.
15. Change "IP Address Serving" to "Off"
16. Select "Next Screen"
17. You will be prompted to select a user name and password for write access to the router, fill these in as appropriate.
18. Select "Restart Device"
19. When the router comes back up login and select "Quick Menus"
20. Select "Network Address Translation"
21. Select "Add Public Range"
22. "Range Name" call it whatever you like for purposes of this documentation well call it "Static1"
23. "Type" is "Static"
24. "First Public Address" is the lowest useable IP in your range and "Second Public Address" is the highest useable IP.
25. Select "Add NAT Public Range"
26. Select "Show/Change Map List"
27. Select "Easy-PAT List"
28. Select "Add Map"
29. "First Private Address" is lowest private IP you want to use and "Last Private Address" is the highest.
30. Select "Use NAT Public Range"
31. Select "Static1" in this example
32. Select "Add NAT Map"
33. Select "Move Map"
34. Select the newly created map (hit enter)
35. Hit the up arrow to move it to the top of the list and hit enter to place it.
36. Exit back to the main menu and reboot the router (under Utilities and Diagnostics) Phew, that was a long journey, you should be ready to roll at this point. Don't forget to configure your firewall rules as well. At this point all your ports are open to the internet. I won't go into that here. The nice folks over in the "Security" forum can help you with that.
Credits: A big round of applause has to go to drmorley aka Frank Morley for steps 19-35. I have copied these from his documentation. I would still be trying to figure out how to get this router working if it was not for his help.
