Been waiting for R30, just need to wait a few weeks now for the feedback to see if its problematic to go from 50 to 100.

Any feedback appreciated.

If the modem has a LAN IP address, how did they do that?

Note: Once in Modem Mode, the IP address you use to access your Super Hub changes from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.100.1

The cable modem itself won't have an IP on your network, it *provides* the public IP from the ISP to the connected equipment.

In fact the cable modem has multiple interfaces, and each one is numbered; the cable side is all hidden and we don't care. The Ethernet side has as its own IP 192.168.1.100 but then it issues over DHCP an address that might be 62.x.x.x or whatever for your area.

That doesn't stop it responding to the 192.168.1.100 if you need to get into its own software.

Thomson Speedtouch ADSL modems can do something similar when used in PPPoE/PPPoA mode and "assign public IP to device" is used. I ran with that option for ~3 years on Bulldog.

I switched my dad to modem mode and it's been working great.
