Question about Netopia (3347NWG-VGX) Wireless Router (3347NWGVGX)
I am a small business using a file server with Windows Business Server 2003. My internet provider (AT&T) recently replaced my old Cayman router with a Netopia 3347-02. Since then we have had nothing but problems. My tech support people tried unsuccessfully to change the ip address of the Netopia router to the ip address of the old cayman router, but each time they tried, the router would freeze and would require a hard boot (back to the factory settings) to restart it. AT&T finally convinced my IT people that the ip address could not be changed in the router and so we changed the ip address in the server and most of my software. For the most part we are up and running, but when we plug in my Toshiba VP phones, the internet goes down within about 5 minutes and can only be restarted by unplugging the vp phones and doing a soft re-boot on the router. Toshiba says their VP phones do not require an ip address to be programmed into the phones, so apparently that is not the problem. Also, about twice a week all the desktop computers lose connection to the internet and/or the file server. If we lose connection to the internet and file server at the same time, we can do a soft reboot of the router and get restarted, but shortly thereafter, we lose connection to just the file server and have to reboot it. I have had 4 different tech people from 3 different companies try to diagnoise my problems and every one of them have told me that this Netopia router is not designed for a business setting. AT&T does not agree. Can you help me?
The Netopia Is a business-class router. Not clear from you question are you running Small Business Server or Windows Server 2003? If its the former, it has a wizard that will configure your LAN & the Netopia.
You can configure the Local IPs on the Netopia in the DHCP settings in expert mode.
The VP (VOIP?) phones are acting as a DHCP server & re-configure the network to their defaults.
Any 1/2 decent IT person (witth some real qualifications) could figure straiten this out...beware of "Techs"

You can change the IP of the router via the GI going in through expert mode and configeration. You can also telnet in, then enter the keyword "magic" then configure. You should get top>>. type "view" and you can step through all the setting, To change a setting step down through the tree by "keyword name"<CR>. until you get to correct keyword level, then to switch an option on/off "set on" or off or "set some-value", then save, then quit or top tio get back to top level of config tree. Known problem is that the target SNR for the down stream direction is set to zero [type in dmt ds tsnr to display this]. Looks like this modum is poorly implimented as it fails to down the speed if SNR drops below 6dB, I replaced it foe D-link DSL-3640B due to these performance problems. The 3640B gets hot but it keeps the SNR above 4 dB from 6500 kbps down to 4000kbps at night and back up next day. (dja.)

Tips for a great answer:
Before You Start
Telnet into the Netopia router's Main Menu at 192.168.1.1 (if using the default IP setting). If your network has a different IP addressing scheme, modify this accordingly. Click Here! for instructions on using telnet and Hyperterminal (serial connection).
Login with the user name and password. The Superuser login is required to save changes. If you are unsure of this, contact your network administrator.
Don't forget to press the Enter key to save any entries. Hitting the back space, delete or tab without first hitting enter will undo any changes.
The Esc key will take you back towards the main menu screen.
Once you have completed your configuration, you should reboot the Netopia to save and apply your changes.

Server List Configuration
You have now configured your router for TCP/UDP port forwarding. If you have a switched connection (ISDN or Analog), you will need to either disconnect and reconnect your Internet connection, or restart your router for the Nat Server List changes to take effect. If you wish to filter traffic for your static IP mappings, please see the following Netopia Technote:
