Question
Can I use static IP addresses for my home computers and appliances?
Answer

Manually Configuring Static IP Addresses

Available Static IP Addresses

The current 2Wire gateways reserve the first 63 IP addresses in the internal network subnet for static use. By default, the gateway uses the non-routable 192.168.1.0/24 subnet; the addresses 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.63 are reserved for static IP addresses. The 2Wire gateways DHCP server delivers addresses 192.168.1.64 - 192.16.1.253 to dynamic IP clients on your internal network.

The 2Wire gateways internal IP address scheme can also use the non-routable 172.16.0.0/16 and 10.0.0.0/16, or you can configure your own subnet.

2Wire gateways support both dynamic and static IP addressing on your internal network. The gateway's DHCP server automatically assigns an IP address to a network device upon request; however, you can manually configure a static IP address for any device on your network.

2Wire gateways provide the following settings for the three home network IP range options:

  Default Settings Option 1 Option 2
Static 192.168.1.1 - .63 172.16.1.1 - .32 10.0.1.1 - .32
Dynamic 192.168.1.64 - .250 172.16.1.33 - .250 10.0.1.33 - .250
Reserved 192.168.1.251-.253 172.16.1.251-.254 10.0.1.251-.254
Subnet 255.255.255.0 255.255.0.0 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.254 172.16.0.1 10.0.0.1
DNS 192.168.1.254 172.16.0.1 10.0.0.1
CIDR 192.168.1.0/24 172.16.0.0/16 10.0.0.0/16
