Question about Adtran NetVanta 3200 Router

1 Answer

Can't access the internet..

Hello, I have an Adtran 3200 router connected to a T1 line with one IP address. An HP Procurve2810 switch is in the middle between the Adtran and all 7 of the office workstations trying to share the T1 (at least that what I hoped for). I can't seem to figure out how to set up the router to assign each of these workstations a unique IP address whenever it tried to connect to the internet.
I hope someone can help me out since this my first experience with T1 and I thought it would be similar to DSL.

I believe that what you want to do is use DHCP which can assign an IP address, gateway, and DNS server addresses to computers on your network automatically. Many DSL routers include this functionality.

Normally a T1 router does not handle DHCP and the 2824 like most switches does not either. It can act as a DHCP relay but that's a feature typically used for remote locations of larger networks.

There are a couple of different ways to handle this.

1. You may be able to use your old DSL router for this role but only if it will allow you to set the gateway address to an address that doesn't match its own, i.e. the gateway address given to all clients by DHCP must be the internal address of the ADTRAN router.

2. If you have a server like MS Small Business Server then it can handle the DHCP.

3. If neither of the above are practical, you can install 3rd party DHCP server software on a PC. Here's a link to some info on doing this for windows: Be aware that if the machine serving DHCP goes down, so will your network after a period of time.

4. I don't recommend using APIPA which is the last ditch method of automatically assigning a network address to PCs when a DHCP server can't be found. You could make this work by giving the router an internal address on the 169.254.0,0 network but you would need to manually configure the gateway and DNS server addresses to make this work.

Regardless of how you handle this, be careful to use a private address range for your side of the router. For a network your size you would normally assign a address with a subnet mask of

Can't connect Dell TrueMobile 1184 with Adtran NetVanta 3200

It sounds like you need to "crossover" the connection.

Using a crossover patch cable to connect the two devices is the first thing that comes to mind. (

However, some routers/switches have physical buttons on ports to cross them over or you can use their web-based management to change port settings.

I hope this helps.

Cctv remote view/ adtran total access 900e

It's not likely that VZ gave you dynamic IP's, but it's possible. You should have been given more than one. If not, it's better to get more and a set of configuration instructions. In the last one I set up, we put a 5-port switch on the ethernet port coming off the Adtran, then fed 2 routers and a security system from the switch. Our gateway was one number lower than the bank of IP's we had, and we just gave each piece of equipment a static ip address and gateway to the gateway :-)

Going wireless with a T1 Line

Going wireless should not be influenced by the nature of your internet connection. Here, I will assume that your definition of "standard router" is the kind of router we can buy at any electronic store (DLink, Linksys). I you are think more about a high end router such as a Cisco 2600 or 2800, please post a comment and I will adjust my answer.

If you already have internet access through your T1 using a wired network, you may just add one (or more) Wireless Access Points to your existing network. No need for a router here since you already have one for connecting the wired network.

On the other side, if your T1 line will be dedicated to your Wireless access, then a router should do the job. Usualy a T1 line uses a static IP address on the WAN side. If your Wireless coverage required more than one Access Points, then I would suggest you to use a standard router (no Wifi) with seperate access points.
