Is there a way to change my IP address?

Is there a way to change my IP address?

 Been playing around with the realtime 1.7. And wondered if there is a way to change my IP address on my 3800HGV-B? I did a search here and can across some links from past threads but they just take me to the main forum page.

 

 I tried just to unplug the gate way for about 10 minutes but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

 

 Thanks

No, you cannot change your IP on your own.  Why does your IP address need to be changed?

 Thanks for the reply. It doesn't need to be changed. I was just playing around to see what all I can adjust and what not. Just sometimes I get board and start to play, that's all.

The ip will be static unless they change the ip for the vrad. In other words you may have the same ip for years but there is no guarantee unless you pay for a static ip.

Re: Is there a way to change my IP address?

There is one method that sometimes works, but it's not guaranteed.

 

1. Go to the following web page on your 2Wire router:

 

http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_5_7

 

This will require you to log in with the 2Wire router's password.  If you don't have it, it's usually on a white sticker on the side/bottom of the router.

 

2. Click the Reset button all the way at the bottom that says "Reset to Factory Default State".

 

WARNING: This will erase all configuration in the router, including firewall pinholes, static IP assignments, etc.  Write any/all of this information down before you do this so that you can put it back laster.

 

3. Look at the lights on the front of the router.  When the router resets, all the lights will go out except the power light.  Allow the router to go through this part of the reset process.  Eventually, the router will fully reset and will come up to where the Broadband light is blinking red.

 

--> As soon as the Broadband light is blinking red, pull the plug on the router to power it off.

 

4. Leave the router off for about an hour.

 

5. After an hour, power the router back up and let it come up and sync.

 

If you're lucky, it will get a new external IP address when it comes back up.

 

6. If you have any custom firewall or static IP configuration, put it back into the router now.

Sorry, but that procedure will not work on 2Wire routers on the AT&T U-Verse system.

No, there is no way to change your IP address short of getting a new RG or VRAD port, which will require a service call.

"This will require you to log in with the 2Wire router's password.  If you don't have it, it's usually on a white sticker on the side/bottom of the router."

 

I see an FCC ID, IMEI, S/N, and SKU, and H/W and Model number but no password.

Re: Is there a way to change my IP address?

Gphejo, which unit do you have?

The instructions should be correct for the 510, 589, 3600, 3800, 3801.

 

If your an inid 3812 install will have the i38hg indoor unit, for this the address and password is located on the front cover of the iPSU or power supply unit, a white box the size of a 4 bread toaster.

 

If the cover is missing would require a new power supply, obtained by scheduling a service call... 4 hour appointment window,

 

If you have a i38hg set up as an AP to support one of the above RGs listed there is no access available to make the change.

How can you tell which model you have?

I want to try this but I cannot find the system password. The number shown on the yellow sticker (Wireless Network Key) is not accepted when I enter it into the link that you have given.

Where can I find the password if the WNK is not it?
