Thomson TG784 – Routed IP & NAT Quick setup


Aim of this article:

This guide provides instructions on how to setup your Thomson TG784 to function with both Routed IP & NAT at the same time.

Open your Thomson's configuration wizard. This is available by default at:

http://192.168.1.254/ewizard.htm

You will be presented with a choice of templates to use. Select the one labelled Zen TG784 Config Routed & NAT.

Click Next to continue.

You will then be prompted for your Zen username and connection password. Please enter these as per the Technical Details email you received when joining Zen. 

At present the Automatic configuration facility is not enabled, the next firmware revision will enable this. 

Click Next to continue.

Next you can specify the IP addresses to use for the NAT settings, where the defaults for the Thomson are already entered. For most networks these settings may be left as they are.

Click Next to continue.

On this page you will need to enter the information about your Zen IP Addresses. Please refer to the Technical Details email you received when you joined Zen). The public IP address will be the IP listed as Router IP.

Once these settings have been entered click Next to continue.

The final part of the configuration specifies the Voice details (please refer to the Technical Details email you received when joining Zen)

Click Next to continue.

You will now be asked to confirm your settings.

Click Start to confirm.

Please wait while your Thomson configures itself.

Your router is now configured to use Routed IP and NAT at the same time.

Click Finish to complete the configuration and close the window.

Setting a computer to use a Public IP

By default a computer will obtain a private IP via DHCP and will use NAT. In order to use Routed IP, you must configure your computer to do so.

Information on how to setup Routed IP is available at the following links:

Windows XP
• Windows Vista
• Mac OS X

Once the computer has been setup it should automatically work in Routed IP mode.

You can test this by visiting a site such as http://whatismyip.com/ - this should report the public IP which you have configured on your computer, and not the router IP.
