Netgear DGN1000 Setup - Routed IP

This article details how to setup a Netgear DGN1000 from factory defaults using a Routed IP.

Occasionally due to equipment, or preference you will need to present a public IP on the WAN interface. This is using a Routed IP.

A block of IP addresses (or subnet) requires three IP addresses. A broadcast address, a network address and a gateway address. For instance, if you have been allocated a block of four IPs. the first would be the network address, the second to last is the gateway and the last is the broadcast address. Therefore, out of a block of four IP addresses, three have been allocated and that leaves one as a spare IP. So you would use the spare IP for the device.

For example:
10.10.10.10 - Network Address
10.10.10.11 - Spare IP
10.10.10.12 - Gateway
10.10.10.13 - Broadcast Address

Firstly, connect your router to it’s internet connection and computer. Open up a web browser and navigate to 192.168.3.17.

The username is admin and the password is Bonding123.

Once logged in, click on Basic Settings. Encapsulation mode should be PPPoA and then underneath that enter the login details provided by your ISP. NAT should be disabled. Click on Apply.

Now navigate to Network Settings, under the Advanced submenu. Change the LAN IP Address from 192.168.3.17 to 10.0.3.x (x is the router number, so 10.0.3.1 for the first router, 10.0.3.2 for the second and so on). Also disable DHCP then click Apply.

Once the router has rebooted you may need to type 10.0.3.x into your address bar to login to the router again.

Next click on Select Password from the Maintenance submenu on the left side. The new password should be un0bond1ng.

The final bit of setting up is to input your Sharedband Service information. To do this, click on Configuration under Sharedband on the left hand menu.

Underneath Sharedband Subscription enter all the information that you were provided. Virtual Router Mode should be active and the virtual router address should be set to the second to last IP from your block. The Virtual Router Netmask should also be changed to correspond to your subnet.

Now repeat the process for the second router and so on. The LAN IP Address will change for each router. For example, the second router would have IP of 10.0.3.2 and the third, 10.0.3.3. However each router should use the same credentials and the same Virtual Router Address.

The correct subnet for you depends on how many IP addresses you have in your block.

Number of IPs Subnet Mask Slash Notation
4 255.255.255.252 /30
8 255.255.255.248 /29
16 255.255.255.240 /28
32 255.255.255.224 /27
