Sharedband Power Router Pro - 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

On the left hand menu, click on Settings and then LAN Settings.

Change the Router LAN IP Address 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).

Disable DHCP and set the VRRP Gateway IP Address from the second to last IP in your block. Also change the VRRP Subnet Mask to correspond to the correct subnet for you.

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

Click on Save and Reboot.

When the router has restarted, you will need to navigate to 10.0.3.x in your web browser and enter the username and password once again.

Now that you are logged in, click on Settings again and then Change Password. The new password should be un0bond1ng.

Now you can enter your WAN connection details, by clicking on Settings and then WAN Settings.

Enter your broadband username and password, using a PPPoA connection. The VPI and VCI should be 0 and 38 respectively.

WAN MTU is 1492. Repeat this process for your second phone line in ADSL1 from the Settings menu.

The final step is to go back to Settings and select Sharedband Service Configuration.

Enter your provided username and password, along with the Community ID number, the node identifier and the Aggregation server IP address. Click on Save and Reboot.

For any additional routers, the process is exactly the same. The only change is each router has a different LAN IP address.
