RG replaced, need help with static IP configuration

They replaced my RG3800 with a 3801

I have a static ip range and can't find how to configure a static IP on one of the ethernet ports.

It took a while to figure it out a few years ago when i first got UVerse.. any help?

I've searched and alot of the links in the forums nolonger work.

 

it was listed under Broadband, Status, as a

Public Networks

  User Defined Supplemental Networks

    Status                        enabled

    Rounter Address     99.xx.xx.xx

    Subnet Mask            255.255.255.248

 

under LAN, IP Address, Allocation

Device: RouterName

Current  Address           99.xx.xx.xx

Device Status                 Connected DHCP

Firwall                              Enabled

Address Assighment    Public (select WAN IP Mapping)

WAN IP Mapping            Public from pool:99.xx.xx.xx

When you get a static IP block, it will be a block of 8 addresses, of which 6 are usable for devices, and 1 of those must be assigned to the RG.

Example:

You receive block: 99.99.99.64 through 99.99.99.71

• 99.99.99.64 and 99.99.99.71 are reserved and not usable.
• Pick the highest usable address in the block for the RG. In this case, that would be 99.99.99.70.
• Go to the RG's main menu, and go to Settings -> Broadband -> Link configuration. Check "Enable" under "Add additional network". Put 99.99.99.70 into the router address field, and the subnet mask you were assigned into the Subnet Mask field (depends on the size of the block, for an 8-address block like this its 255.255.255.248).
• Click save.
• You can now assign static IPs to devices on the Settings -> LAN -> IP Address Allocation page, and then adjust their firewall pinholes on the Settings -> FIrewall -> Applications, Pinholes, and DMZ page.

• Your available IPs for devices in this case are 99.99.99.65 through 99.99.99.69.
