    note: to avoid confusion...

    this guide is for people who wants to enable the ROUTING capabilities of their modem and share the internet connection using a switch or hub, so there's no need for them to buy a router...

    this guide is NOT intended for people who are using a separate router like linksys, dlink, edimax, tplink, etc...

    this is not a guide on how to configure your modem so you can use it together with your newly bought router... (as i find most people are confused and thought they needed to do this before setting up their router)

    if you are using a separate router, then there is no need to follow this guide and configure your modem to router mode... all configuration should be done on your router, leave your modem alone... default modem settings is bridge mode...

    although you can follow this guide, set your modem to router mode and still use a separate router, but that would result in a double router connections... that also means double port forwarding rules...

    This guide works on DB108 and DB120 modems too...

    ==================================================

    note: this guide is NOT for PPPoE user... read post below for PPPoE user...

    ==================================================

    You may need to set a static IP address on your computer first before you can access the web config... (you know how to do that right?)

    [​IMG]

    computer IP: 192.168.1.33
    subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    default gateway: 192.168.1.1

    save settings and reboot...

    after restarting, on your web browser type 192.168.1.1

    Alcatel ADSL HomePlusPlus
    Username: admin
    Password: admin

    DB108 / DB120
    Username: admin
    Password: password

    then follow the screenshots to guide you...

    go to Advanced Setup / Wide Area Network (WAN) Setup

    click EDIT on the first line with service name br_0_100 if your VPI/VCI is 0/100

    or...

    click EDIT on the fourth line with service name br_0_35 if your VPI/VCI is 0/35

    check Enable DHCP Server

    Start IP Address: 192.168.1.2
    End IP Address: 192.168.1.254
    Leased Time (hour): 168

    after that click SAVE/REBOOT Button

    above values are just an example, you could set your own values like in Start IP address, Leased time, etc...

    after this, you can change your computer back to Dynamic IP Address if you like...

    above screenshots were taken from a working connection... that means if it doesn't work for you, it's either you are doing something wrong or you didn't follow the guide completely... in that case, go back to step 1 and try again...

    if it doesn't work out, try hard resetting your modem, hold the reset switch at the back of your modem for a few seconds then try following the guide again...

  3. dyoddyowel

    dyoddyowel Member




    yah... if you don't want to buy a router, you can put this modem into router mode so you only need a switch to share internet connections...

    Xhitman Member

    dyoddyowel Member




    nakalimutan ko lagay... sa province 0/35 ang vpi/vci...

    @ Xhitman

    same speed tyo, about 70 to 90 kBps... pag 2port switch (wala yta)isang computer lang makakabit mo... useless din... hehehe... not sure sa price pero around 800 pesos yta 8port switch ngayon...

    @ duhwho

    pag bridge mode, need mo pa ng separate router para ma-share internet... what do you mean ba na parang smartbro?
     



  11. i think parang smartbro nga, kasi kung ilipat mo ang connection to other pc di na gagana... kaya nga yung sa friend ko nilagyan ko pa linksys router at naka clone yung mac add ng pc kung saan na-activate yung dsl...

    Xhitman Member
