U-verse for BUSINESS? : 2Wire 3600HGV bridge mode? or another AT&T supported VDSL modem?

I am having trouble properly configuring this AT&T 2Wire 3600HGV modem for my network. Maybe someone is aware of a different firmware for this product?

 

I am completely aware of how to setup the DMZ mode & router behind router setup in these boxes but that is NOT the point. (We have supported firewalled networked equipment working that has all the bells & whistles including QoS)

 

In the event of a factory reset of the AT&T 2Wire VDSL modem at this business, I want to properly insure the following business requirements are met:

- DHCP - OFF (at min, it appears you must leave one available?)

- WiFi - OFF (Yes this can be turned off, but bridging it always insured it was turned off in the past. ON is a security concern among just bad business i.e. conflict with other business WiFi, employees might see/use this non-content filtered WiFi, etc etc)

- & passing off internet service needs to be easy to another networked supported OUTSIDE of AT&T firewall. (I'm NOT asking for AT&T support on this, but in the bridge DSL world, this was EASY)

- if bridging this 2Wire is NOT an option, backing up the configuration settings would be a nice alternative but that is not available as well?

 

Bridging the old DSL modems always worked nicely but the 2Wire 3XXXHGV line appears to be the ONLY ones to support the AT&T VDSL Max Turbo speeds. 24Mbps down / 3 Mbps up which we use not only for normal business operations (credit cards, business email, web based training, etc) but this high speed is required to view onsite security video (3Mbps up) and offer customers FAST free WiFi!

 

AT&T U-Verse offers the right price, contract, speed, internet package & installers to properly handle our resturant locations company's data needs but I'm struggling with the their "business" support of this 2Wire VDSL modem product. We ONLY use the internet, no TV (not legally available for restaurants, yet). No Voip because POTS is our reliable backup. So it's just the internet service ...

 

For coverage on AT&T Uverse, we have over 50 locations lit up like a Christmas tree but sadly business support on this product is driving me nutz! Maybe because I now see this is listed under "Residential Gateway"? Is this AT&T 2Wire VDSL modem product not meant for business? Is anyone aware of another supported AT&T VDSL modem or a different 2Wire firmware available? Official AT&T support has me running in circles (AT&T U-verse support > AT&T Connecttech > AT&T Connecttech360 > AT&T U-verse support, rinse, repeat)  

 

help?

There is no true bridge mode on the 2Wire routers.  However, you can still configure it such that almost all functions of your own router will work properly.

 

1. Set your router's WAN interface to get an IP address via DHCP.  This is required at first so that the 2Wire recognizes your router.

2. Plug your router's WAN interface to one of the 2Wire's LAN interfaces.

3. Restart your router, let it get an IP address via DHCP.

4. Log into the 2Wire router's interface.  Go to Settings -> Firewall -> Applications, Pinholes, and DMZ

5. Select your router under section (1).

6. Click the DMZPlus button under section (2).

7. Click the Save button.

8. Restart your router, when it gets an address via DHCP again, it will be the public outside IP address.  At this point, you can leave your router in DHCP mode (make sure the firewall on your router allows the DHCP renewal packets, which will occur every 10 minutes), or you can change your router's IP address assignment on the WAN interface to static, and use the same settings it received via DHCP.

9. On the 2Wire router, go to Settings -> Firewall -> Advanced Configuration

10. Uncheck the following: Stealth Mode, Block Ping, Strict UDP Session Control.

11. Check everything under Outbound Protocol Control except NetBIOS.

12. Uncheck NetBIOS under Inbound Protocol Control.

13. Uncheck all the Attack Detection checkboxes (7 of them).

14. Click Save.

 

Your router should now be able to route as if the 2Wire was a straight bridge, for the most part.

 

Inbound port 22 might be blocked, and inbound ports 8000-8015 might also be blocked, and there's nothing that can be done about it.

 

This is how I have my 2Wire configured, and I have a Cisco 2811 behind it doing IPSec, IPv6 tunnels, etc.

This is an old post but seems very relevant to what I am trying to do.

I had my RG 3800 set up as a "dumb modem" with an Time Capsule doing NAT and wired and wireless for a couple years.  All was well until I had a tech (not ATT)  in to install broadband dial out for my home security system.  It was disasterous... took all day and when the guy left my Apple gear was unplugged.  The good news is that the network was working, though in ATT standard configuration and the security system was working.  I have spent two days and found at least three different recipes for getting back to RG 3800 being the modem, the Time Capsule doing the rest.  This post looked worth a try.  Where I know it fails is when I attempt to put the Time Capsule in DMZ.  I get the message that the device has a static IP. In Airport Utilities>Internet> Connect Using: is set to DHCP, IPv4 Address: 192.168.1.66, The Renew DHCP Lease does nothing. Router Address is 192.168.1.254, DNS is same.  When I look at LAN devices on the RG I have a device with IP of  70.138.xxx.xx which looks like the Gateway's WAN IP This is shown as a DMZ device with a disabled firewall, Public WAN IP mapping and Router WAN IP.  I have restarted the Time Capsule several times with the same result.  I am not keen to take the RG down as I do have an internet connection... can ask this question and maybe get an answer.

You may have to factory reset the RG to get it to enable the DMZPlus mode for the Time Capsule. You can factory reset the RG using the last button on this page:

http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_5_7

After that, follow post 2 in this thread to set up the DMZPlus mode.

I was having the same problem: worked forever (modem in DMZplus mode, Airport Extreme handling NAT, etc) but a power outage brought back the Double NAT error. When following the instructions again at the top of this thread, I too got the error message about my router having a static IP. After some trial and error, I realized you just need to delete the router from the list of devices and have the modem "re-see" it:

1) On the U-Verse router, go to Settings > LAN
2) Go to the Devices section about midway down the page
3) Click "Clear List" (this is the key step)
4) Go to Firewall > Applications, Pinholes and DMZ and select your router (I entered my router's IP address instead of trusting the device that auto-appeared).

After that I simply had to refresh my router's IP address (per the original instructions in this thread) and voila.

Hi, I have an Exchange 2013 mail server I want to assign one of the public IP's too but the Uverse modem/router only allows me to assign a public IP to a DHCP device and all of my servers are static. I have some other servers like a Windows 2012 Essentials that is a DC that I would like to assign an IP to and port 443.

 

Any idea how to assign a public IP to a devive with an internal static IP?

 

Thanks

The U-Verse 2Wire gateways do not support multihomed hosts (i.e. hosts with more than one IP address).  So you cannot assign both a private internal and a public external IP address to the same server.

 

You can do it one of two ways:

 

1. Assign only the public external IP address to the server (either statically, or via DHCP from the 2Wire).  If you do DHCP and assign the IP address from the public range you've purchased, the 2Wire will always hand out the same IP address to that server, so the IP address really isn't "dynamic" except in mechanism.

 

2. If you want the server on a private IP address, then you have no choice but to use your own router and set it up as the DMZPlus device as shown in post 2 of this thread.  You will only be able to use ONE of your public IP addresses like this, and you'll have to input the appropriate NAT translation entries and firewall pinholes into your router.  The reason you can only use 1 IP address is the same reason as above -- the router would be multihomed (multiple IP addresses, 1 MAC address).

Thank you, that will work. If I wanted to also host a web site with 443 I
could use their supplied one and essentially host 2 devices?

Thank You, this is great knowledge

Be warned that if you don't have static IP, and you have U-verse IPTV with wireless receivers, AT&T will reserve the 443 port for its own use to control the WAP that talks to the wireless receivers.

Thanks, then I will just use a static IP from the pool for the mail server for the mail server and be done with it. The mail server uses 443 for OWA so I can't use that with their IP either.

SomeJoe, the trick is since it is a Windows network if I use DHCP on a server getting it to resolve properly in DNS. I could probably do it with the host file and make things work. I will play around with option 1 this weekend. I am not sure how Outlook will function either but it will be fun to try.

 

Thank You

I'm trying to replace my 2WIRE 3800HGV-B with a Cisco/Linksys E4200.
I've copied/cloned the MAC address of my 2WIRE to the E4200, and set the E4200 to use dynamic rather than fixed IPs.
This has seemingly worked well, but after 10-14 days everything stops.
Are there additional settings that need to be made on the E4200 to get this to work?
It's not clear to me whether the E4200 has to track/poll AT&T to detect changes in IP leases, or whether AT&T pushes/notifies the E4200 of a new IP.
VERY frustrating.
If it's not possible to replace the 2WIRE with the E4200, I guess the more complicated fallback position is to do what others appear to have done successfully, - namely turn the 2WIRE into a kind of faux-bridge to which the E4200 is attached.

You cannot replace the 2WIRE 3800 with the E4200, as the E4200 doesn't have the circuitry/logic to handle the VDSL2  protocol spoken between the 2WIRE and the VRAD.  

 

You may place the E4200 in Router behind the 2WIRE configuration. Please go back to the first page of this thread, and look at the very first reply.  It will tell you how to do that.

Trying to set up a Buffalo N300 behind my 2Wire RG in order to take advantage of 802.11n. I've been using the Router WAN to RG LAN solution and it's worked fine except for some port forwarding issues (Xbox LIVE disconnects every few minutes even after UPnP and port forwarding). I'd like to try the LAN to LAN solution. My questions are: when using the router LAN to RG LAN solution, do you still put the router in DMZPlus? And what should I do to the firewall check boxes in the RG Firewall section? PS: I will disable wireless on the RG, and disable DHCP on the router. Will this make it so the router is the access point and the RG handles IP addresses? Thanks

Treat these as if you didn't have the new router/access point at all.

Yes.

   Thanks SomeJoe for your help here.  It's my first time using Uverse so I have same questions as many people here.  How to use my "state-of-the-art" wireless router with the RG?   My RG is 3801HGV and I can't believe it's still a b/g wireless router.  ATT charged $6 per month for renting this piece and it's worse than my 12 year old wireless router that I used before.  Anyway, I went to this forum and find a way to bypass it.  No perfect solution.  I have only 2 options: post 2 or post 13.  My goal is I want to keep all the setttings on my router so when I switch back to cable , I don't have to set up my router again.  I only have NAS storage to share files and couple IP cameras so I set up port forwarding on my own router.  I went thru almost 464 messages here (sorry I don't have time to go thru all of them :smileyhappy: ).  My question is if I use post 2 solution, can I leave the wireless function of the RG enabled?  If yes, should it be set to same SSID, password, channel,... as my wireless router?  Do the computers connecting to RG in this case can see the computers connecting to my router?  I prefer post 13 solution so I can put one upstair and 1 downstair to have better wireless coverage.  I plan to connect the 2 routers thru livewire (using your house power wires as network cable).  Do you know if I have to setup port forwarding on the RG for my IP cam in this case?  Thanks.

hieunknown,

You have two conflicting goals here.

1. If you want to keep settings on your router and set up all port forwarding yourself on your router, then you need to follow post 2. However, in this case, you will not be able to have wireless clients that connect to the RG able to communicate with wireless clients that connect to your router.

2. If you want wireless clients on the RG to communicate with wireless clients on your router, then you need to follow post 13. However, in this case, you will not be able to work with the firewall on your router -- all pinholes that you want will have to be done on the 2Wire using its firewall.

If you set up via post 2, then you do not have to do anything to the RG for firewall pinholes -- everything would be controlled by your router. Conversely, if you set up via post 13, you will have to configure all firewall pinholes on the 2Wire.

Hi SomeJoe7777,

Thanks for the years of responses. I've learned a lot from this thread. 

I'm about to upgrade my home network and want to make sure I do it the right way, and am still protected.

Right now I have a 3801 RG connecting all my devices, both wired and wireless.

I'm going to integrate a Synology 1813+ NAS that will be connected to a Netgear WNDR3700. So I will turn off the wirelss on the RG.

My two questions:

Since the 1813+ is feature rich and I'll want to access it while I'm away from home, I should use method #2, correct?

And, will I be exposing my NAS to security threats by doing this, turning on DMZPlus or anyting else?

Thanks!

Rory

Hi rory1,

 

Yes, you should follow post #2 to operate your NetGear router as the DMZPlus device.  When doing this, you also want to:

 

  1. Turn off wireless on the RG so that all of your wireless traffic is routed through the NetGear.
  2. The default LAN subnet on the NetGear is usually 192.168.1.x, which is the same as the default subnet on the 2Wire.  You will need to change the one on the NetGear to something different, like 192.168.2.x.

After you have this set up, you should have Internet access.

 

Once you've verified that, then set up your Synology on a static IP address in your LAN subnet that is outside the DHCP range of the NetGear.  For example, if the NetGear is handing out 192.168.2.100 through 192.168.2.200, then set the Synology to 192.168.2.20.  Fill in the subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS on the Synology as appropriate.

 

Now configure the firewall on the NetGear to allow inbound connections on ports corresponding to the services you're going to run on the Synology.  (e.g. HTTP = port 80, FTP = port 21, etc.).

Joe,

 

I have followed post # 2 to a tee. Worked on the first try, then after 15 minutes all went dead, no connection to the net. I believe I failed to set the renewal correctly.

 

Using 3801HGV and E4200.

 

Now, when I repeat the procedure, I cant even seen the 4200 on the LAN status page or in the firewall settings page...The first time it showed up as "Cisco" and it isnt appearing again.

 

I even IDed even MAC address and named it for a process of elimination. Doesnt appear.

 

Lastly, I reset the E4200...nothing.

 

When I have all 4 ports plugged - Macbook, M-Cell, Wireless TV Pod, and E4200...all show up but the 4200.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

My purpose for using the 4200 is for wireless coverage. The 3801 is pretty weak for coverage vs. the 4200. I do use some port forwarding for STEAM and for M-Cell but the is about it.

 

THX

OK, two possible courses of action:

1. I have seen the 2Wire RG units sometimes have intermittent issues with DMZPlus mode where things that should work all of a sudden stop working. This is corrected by doing a factory reset of the 2Wire. Go to the following page:

http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_5_7

and use the "Reset to Factory Default State" at the bottom. After that, set up your E4200 again with the post #2 instructions.


2. If all you want is increased wireless coverage, you might consider post #13 instead. This would just turn the E4200 into a wireless access point. Then you can configure the firewall on the 2Wire for the Synology.

SomeJoe,

You are a saint sir.  I've read every single post on this forum over the last 48 hours and the fact you have stuck with us and provided simple, easy and amazing information is really something.  Thank you for it.

 

To my issue - 

Background - I have ATT Uverse internet only (No TV, No VoIP) with a HG3801.  Every since switching to the newer model HG, the wireless reception is garbage in the back of my house.  I recently purchased a NetGer WN2500RP (Universal Dual Band WiFi Range Extender).

 

On the rg, I have an Xbox 360, Laptop used for torrenting/Hulu (that can't be watched on Xbox) and a Synology DS213+ (on its way) all wired directly to it.

 

Ideal Situation For the Netgear:

I would love to plug it into the bedroom, hardwire another Xbox to it (to improve signal while gaming) and improve overall wireless signal in the back of the house.  I would be able to move about the house without any issues and be able to use my laptop to stream movies from my DS213+ through the Xbox, to the TV in the bedroom.

 

I didn't catch any posts that mentioned a wireless setup - most involved the Router being wired to the LAN or WAN port of the RG.  After

 

I did not read one post that didn't involve a direct, wired connection between the RG and a router.  My gut tell me #13 is the best route but my desire for wireless is what is causing me a hang up.

 

Thanks again SomeJoe

Hi moezer,

Your NetGear WN2500RP is a wireless access point that is designed to be connected in one of two ways:

1. Connect via wired cable from LAN port to the main router in the house (in your case, the 2Wire 3801HGV), and provide wireless access.
2. Connect wirelessly to the main router in the house, and provide wireless access.

Unfortunately, because of the manner in which the 2Wire routers work, method 2 is not possible. Only method 1 will work with the 2Wire equipment.

You will need to run an Ethernet cable from the 2Wire router to the desired location for the NetGear, plug it into the LAN ports of each router on both ends, and then follow post #13. The exception for you in following post #13 is that you should not turn off wireless on the 2Wire. This will give you two wireless access points in the house for better coverage.

With that being said, I have the option of returning the WN2500RP. Is there another piece of equipment that I can get that would allow me to accomplish what I want to do?

 

I should follow-up also and same my goal, first and foremost, is to be able to stream the videos located on the DS213+.  If I can accomplish that, then I am willing to settle on most of the other parts.

Not to provide an additional wireless access point. However, there are a few options to replace the Ethernet cable. There are powerline Ethernet adapters that can run the signal through the power outlets of your house, and there are MoCA adapters that can run the Ethernet signal over coax, if you already have coax wired in the house.

There is some existing coax from when we had Uverse TV (Prior to the wireless STB). I currently have an over-the-air antenna hooked up and running to where the RG is and connecting directly to the TV. Can I use the coax for OTA TV and Ethernet signal? If so, any product recommendations?

Still looking for any recommendation on ethernet to coax (or at least any experiences with them) from anyone out there but I did Google it and there is very little out there. However, I found this little nugget:
http://www.netgear.com/service-provider/products/powerline-and-coax/moca/WM2500RP.aspx

but can't seem to find any place to buy it. Seems like it was just launched this past June-2013.

It's not easy to run MoCA or HPNA along with OTA TV on the same cable without additional diplexers or adapters.

Try these powerline over Ethernet adapters instead. The reviews say they work well and they're way chepaer than MoCA or HPNA adapters:

Thanks for the tip SomeJoe. This route seems much easier and I might be able to save a couple bucks in the process. Looked up the brand and I think i'm going to try and get this Wireless N Starter kit to work:

I'll report back with the results.

I have everything configured but still can't route. I have the 2wire on 172.16.15.x and a Linksys E2500. I am not able to ping the router at 172.16.16.254 which is the Linksys E2500. I am trying to put my mail server in the port forwarding mode on the router. I am very close. Is there something else I need to do? I followed the directions, thought I remembered seeing something about adding a routing statement.

 

Thanks

Did you mean for those two IP addresses to be on different subnets?

 

Please post what subnet is being used by the LAN side of the 2Wire, and what subnet is being used by the LAN side of the Linksys.
