New DSL Modem - Can't see NanoBeams now.

I setup some NanoBeams a couple of years ago to get internet from our rural home to our shop about 1/4 mile away and all has been working great with no issues.  Lightning fried our DSL modem and the internet provider replaced the modem with a new and fancier DSL modem (Actiontec Model T3200).  Although the internet is back up at the house, nothing at the shop.

 

The new modem settings are at 192.168.254.254 instead of 192.168.1.1 and I can't get to the AirOs page anymore either by going to 192.168.1.20

 

Hopefully, there is something simple I need to update or reset to get everything back to working order.  I'm not a networking expert for sure and probably was lucky in getting everything setup with no issues the first time.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Do I need to plug the devices directly to the computer instead of through a LAN port on the modem to upgrade any firmware or setup?

Re: New DSL Modem - Can't see NanoBeams now.

You don't say which radios you use; I'll assume NBE-M5-16.

 

I don't know just how you setup your radios; if you have notes

on this, please post them. But if I had this issue, i would

simply get the modem changed to be in the 192.168.1.n

subnet as it had been. That's a simple internal setting that

you may be able to access yourself; check the Internet.

 

[Of course, the modem also contains a simple router.]

 

If you can't do that, you could change the radios to the

new subnet. First, you would have to set a PC to have a

static IP address in that old subnet: 192.168.1.101, for

example. You could then connect to a radio and access

its internal settings again. But the radios must be on

different IP addresses--not both on 192.168.1.20.

 

You don't have to connect directly to the radio; you can

use a LAN port if you prefer. But that' only a cable swap.   Dav

Re: New DSL Modem - Can't see NanoBeams now.

Thank you for the quick reply and yes you assumed correct on the model.

 

I do not have notes from my previous install.

 

I will attempt to change the modem to 192.168.1.x and if that doesn't work continue with your next suggestions.  I have to leave for work soon and won't be back to try setting it up again for a couple of weeks and will report back then.  Thanks again for the quick response!
