Webramp 700s help needed

I picked up one of these Webramp DSL/Cable routers and I'm having trouble setting it up to work with my SBC/Yahoo! DSL service. I have all the latest firmware and SonicWall updates installed on it. I do not have a static IP from SBC for my DSL service.

Any ideas on how to set it up using my current DSL service?

Thanks

Your DSL/Cable modem should have an internal IP that is fixed, no matter what happens with your dynamic external IP. Your computer is using that IP as its gateway right now. An ipconfig command at the DOS command prompt will give you the IP of the gateway. It's probably a 192.168.x.x number.

You'll need to tell the Webramp to use that as its gateway (WAN settings). And you'll need to tell the Webramp what IP it should use (LAN settings). Then you'll need to tell the Webramp what range of IPs you want to use internally to your computers if you're using DHCP. Or don't use DHCP and assign each computer a static IP on the same subnet as the Webramp's LAN IP. And then you'll have to set your computers to use the Webramp's IP as their new gateway (if you're not using DHCP).

Your dsl might use the amazingly annoying and terrible PPPoE system. I think that is used in some parts of the SBC system. I'm not sure if the webramp supports that or not. I'll check when i get home (I have one also).

The webramp looks like it is capable of using PPPoE, if that is what your service needs. At least, it has the options for it. That is using the sonicwall firmware 5.1.7 (not the webramp firmware that came with the units).

My DSL does use the PPPoE system. I tried setting the Webramp to NAT with PPPoE enabled, but the DSL dialer would not connect.

The only IP that stays the same when I am connected to the internet is 169.254.x.x

I didn't see anyplace on the PPPoE settings that allows me to put in a gateway IP. Should I use the Standard or the NAT option and put in the 169.254.x.x IP?

Since the webramp is an older product, it might not support pppoE very well. You're best bet is probably getting a newer router (linksys, netgear, smc etc) that has better support out of the box. Or switch dsl providers.
