I have a block of 8 fixed static IP's for my internet connection, x.y.z.104 to x.y.z.111 (only six usable ).
My isp has told me that the Openreach modem will be installed by Openreach (or others), normally this then feeds into a router, I do not use a router as such I use a Hardware Firewall (Smoothwall) which does the routing and that will have another one of my static ip's .
I know the default for the HG612 modem is 192.168.1.1 But I will need one of my static ip's x.y.z.104 setting on the modem LAN address .
Has anyone heard of Openreach, Kelly etc. being able to change the modem settings ?.
Of course I know how to unlock the HG612 as I use one on ADSL.
