Difference between Home use router and office router?
Posted on 2007-04-03
My client switched ISPs for there ADSL serve, they had a set of 8 Static IP addresses. The IP address of the old router was 217.xxx.xxx.x and the subnet mask was 255.255.255.248. Now the new ISP clamed to give us the same serves, but the subnet mask in there router is 255.255.255.255.
This meant to me that we have only 1 static IP address and we canto get the other 4 Static IP addresses. I think they are a ISP for small or home office and Home users, and not equip with supplying the severs we have asked for, Am I right here?
The old ISP used an eTec router and the new one are sending us with Linksys and the netgear routers. This has risen doughty in my mind that the ISP cannot give us what we want.
Can some one please shed some light on what is happening here? We are with out internet and emails for the past 3 days.
