First, set your router's (not the DPC3825) IP to 192.168.2.1 (I had used the "2" a long time ago so as to avoid problems with other devices I used to own.) Subnet mask is the default 255.255.255.0 (which allows a 256 [0 to 255] address space).
Then you can hook up the DPC3825 to your router (I use port 1 on DPC3825 to WAN port on router).
DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE ON THE ROGERS USB KEY TO CONNECT! Otherwise, this will change the password.
You login to the web interface of the DPC3825 via:
192.168.100.1 (this may be the only address that works once in bridge mode)
If you cannot connect to the DPC3825 when it is attached to your router, then you will have to connect the DPC3825 directly to your computer (initially).
You log in to the DPC3825 via:
id = cusadmin
password = password
(you can change this)
When logged in:
Under the Administration tab, there is an option to set the WORKING MODE to Bridge Mode or Router Mode (Router Mode is the default).
However, before setting it to Bridge Mode, there are a few things you should do first (while logged in to thee DPC3825):
- turn off wireless on the DPC3825
- turn off the firewall on the DPC3825 -- use the firewall on your router. However, leave the do not respond to pings "On".
- decide if the DPC3825 or your router will provide the IPs for your LAN. If the latter, you can turn off DHCP on the DPC3825 -- however, I had a bit of a problem getting an IP from Rogers when I did this, so I left the DHCP of the DPC3825 "on" but restricted it to giving out exactly one IP (i.e. to my router). You may not have this problem with your router. In any case, you could always turn off the DHCP in the router and turn it on for the DPC3825. If you leave the DHCP "on" in the DPC3825, then do not forget to set the lease time to "0".
Of course, you have to save settings and let the DPC3825 reboot.
Also, you can take the DPC3825 out of bridge mode by connecting to the device via 192.168.100.1, logging in and going to the Administration tab again to set it to Router Mode.
Hope this helps.
