Today I wasted 12 hours and talked to more non technical technicians that I have in five years..
I am attempting to upgrade a AT&T DSL Netopia link to an AT&T Uvers "2Wire" link.
The Netopia ran in Bridge mode and PFSense handled my Static IP /29 range. No one seems to have a clue how to do this with a "2Wire" infact they are now telling me they can't do it and want to deinstall the Uverse and go back to DSL, except someone jumped the un and disconnected the old service before the new service was operational.
I had a static IP range of five usable addresses.
.81 Netopia (Bridge Mode)
.84 NXU/2A (ACU DSP-2)
.85 Rack Jr
With the Netopia in Bridge mode all traffic was passed to PFSense box.
Well the UVerse "2Wire" will not do bridging and infact I can't ping or tracert any of the "static" IPs either so I am not sure that any of the AT&T routing is correctly, or maybe the "2Wire is eating the ICMP messages.
Anyway, I am hoping someone here has a better understanding iof the AT&T "2Wire" and Static IP routing so I can make this work..
TIA, an a safe and Happy Year to all..
