Router/modem not working for external access to internet
Posted on 2013-01-10
Hello all. I recently had a netopia router go bad and att does not seem to have a replacement. The only part not working on the netopia router is the internet access. ATT had me completely reset the netopia and now I have lost all the configuration. Long story short - after 6 hours on the phone with ATT and them recommending me a modem/router for a home, it still not working. Original set up - internal network with 20.0 ip addresses and have a windows 2003 server - one with a public ip address and one with a private ip address. The public ip address has an internal default gateway. I have the server public ip address connected to the router and another cable from the old netopia to a switch which allows all users to connect to the internet.
The internal connection on the netopia is still working, but cannot get any internet. The tech had me change the default gateway on my server to the default modem/router 192.168.... I could not get this to work by changing the gateway to that ip address on the server. What can I do? ATT tells me they no longer make the router that I need, any recommendations? I am looking for some help on this.
