Netgear DM200


[link to this post]
 
I have bought a new separate modem & router for my vdsl connection, mainly as i seem to reboot my router regularly and i do not want to risk DLM kicking in and reducing my speeds. With this setup, the DLM will not be affected and i should retain my 74 down 18 up which i am perfectly happy with.

However i have a few questions for other users of this modem - modem/router. I have configured it to bridge (modem) mode but i am no longer able to access it via 192.168.5.1, the link below says this will now be the only way to access it.

https://kb.netgear.com/30773/How-to-set-DM200-into-b...

I have cleared all history and tried different browsers etc. Can anyone else still access it via this mode ?

my 2nd question is, i have an asus rt-ac57u connected to it and it works well until i change config and it reboots. Half the time it fails to reconnect. It says the router is disconnected from the modem. If i reboot it again, it normally recovers, or i may need to reconfigure it again.

This is fine if i am at home, but if i access the router and reboot it remotely, it is too risky as i am likely to lose access.

The router establishes the pppoe connection and the vlan is also configured on the router.
It all works fine until the reboot.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I am guessing at a subnet issue ie... incorrectly configured.

What is the physical connection to the DM200 and what is the IP address of the device you are using. (I would try using a fixed IP address, such as 192.168.5.9)

Hi,

Have you tried an ipconfig /all command to see what the default gateway is? This should be the IP address of the router. You could try entering this IP address into one of your browsers and it should go to your router's homepage....

Thanks for the response. Iím fine accessing the router via 192.168.1.1.

Damn. I did not think of that. Although if I do change the up range on my laptop to a 192.168.5.x fixed address, will this be the only way to view the stats. Unplug the router from the modem and then connect the laptop with a fixed IP.

I guess this will probably achieve what I want, but itís not very practical.
I will give it a go over the next few days.

My guess is that it's like the HG612 and Vigor 130. You need to tell the modem where to find your 192.168.1.0/24 network. So for example on a Vigor 130 you would need to issue the following command line which tells the modem that the 192.168.1.0 network can be reached out the 192.168.5.1 network port.

ip route add 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.5.1 static

On an unlocked HG612 you can do it via the web interface or edit the configuration file. A quick look at the DM200 manual, the procedure is show on page 65.

You also need to put a 192.168.5.0/24 network address on the wan port of your RT-AC57u. Can't see a proper manual for that online, just a silly quick start manual, so you will have to dig around for how to do that.

Ok, now i need to work out how to configure the router to do this.

I'm sure if i follow these guides, i will probably get there. Thanks for the heads-up.
