Thompson Speedtouch 585 on Be Bethere BeUnlimited ADSL2: Configuration
F**king around with my Be Box I seemed to have cocked it up bigtime,
basically the DNS was slow even when connecting up on a 3G GSM Modem on
a laptop connected either with wireless or LAN to the Be Box
I run a fixed IP setup and the BeBox has 3 active LAN ports and port
4 reserved for BeThere video
Your fixed IP is not the WAN IP!!!
The settings that work for me are as follows
Device: Thompson SpeedTouch 585
Service Static IP 3 Data Ports
Description Port 1, 2 and 3 for Internet connectivity and Port4 Bridge
Routed IPoEoA IP Configuration:
Static WAN IP address 87.194.xxx.xx (secret!)
Wan NetMask 255.255.248.0 (not the 248 is
Gateway IP address 188.8.131.52 (not your Be Box IP)
Primary DNS Server 184.108.40.206 ( you could try OpenDNS too...google)
Secondary DNS Server 220.127.116.11 ( you could try OpenDNS too...google)
HOWEVER These may not be totally correct for you!!!
Why the hell not just call up their FIRST CLASS SUPPORT! (0808 calls
are free from landlines in the UK)
NON-Be Box? router modem settings for FIXED IPs ( xxx.xx yours) might
be (best ask Be):
#1 The modem should be in static mode.
Static IP details:
IP address: 87.194.xxx.xx Subnet Mask: 255.255.248.0
Default Gateway: 18.104.22.168
Primary DNS: 22.214.171.124**
Secondary DNS: 126.96.36.199 2**)
The connection type is RFC1483.
The Be service doesn't require authentication (no username and password).
The encapsulation is LLC based.
The modulation is G.dmt 992.5 (ADSL2+) Annex M.
Please bear in mind BeThere do not support third party hardware....
also consider that **openDNS settings might ( I say might) be quicker
