Does anyone know if the IP address / subnet for the 3600HGV can be set to:
192.168.1.1 / 255.255.255.0
I have seen some posts that suggest the first 64 address are reserved (for what I do not know), and that the typical address the RG is set to is 192.168.1.254 with subnet 255.255.255.0
I am converting from cable and have many IP devices that are configured with static IP addresses above 192.168.1.100 with the gateway set to 192.168.1.1 and do not want to have to change them all if that can be avoided by setting the router.
My install is Monday. I would like to know this so I will not be at the mercy of a lazy ATT tech who does not want to make these changes and just tells me it is not possible.
Also, can the 3600 be configured to be accessible from the WAN side of the device? If not, I suppose I could always get to it from the LAN side via a PC that I have running LogMeIn.com
I have only Internet and 2 phone lines ordered. Will be keeping my DirecTV.............

My install on this past Monday went well, but the AT&T tech knew less than nothing about networking. A real red and green man guy!
I asked him if he could set the router in the 3801 to 192.168.1.1 and he said he did not advise that because it might screw up the router and that ATT does not give them any training other than connecting the DSL line to the router. He mentioned this several times during the course of the installation.
When we went to my PC, which is connected by Ethernet to my Ethernet switch, we could not access the 3801. The ATT tech said he knew everything was right because he could access the Internet on his lap-top using the wireless capability of the 3801.
Turns out he connected one of the Ethernet ports on the 3801 to my old cable modem!!!!! Instead of taking the Ethernet cable from my Ethernet switch that connected it to the cable modem, and moving it over to the 3801, he connected the 3801 to the cable modem!
I got that sorted out, and I was finally able to connect to the 3801 and had no problems setting the IP address for the 3801 to 192.168.1.1. It is working perfectly and nothing got "screwed up".
Also, LogMeIn works fine to access my network remotely.
