IP address question.

I have some access units that come from the factory with the same default IP address. When we connect the units to the network to configure them we get IP address conflicts. Is there any way to isolate the units so we can configure them without having to do one at a time? Thanks, Ernesto

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Its hard to isolate them when you connect those units to your network, the best thing you can do it is to keep the fast ethernet interface in you switch shutdown. Start configuring one by one as you proceed enable the interface and chage the IP address. Or else before connectying disable the default IP and enable DHCP settings to get an IP address from DHCP servers.

    Is it possible to get the factory to send them without the static IP instead? Seems like something simple they could do for you.

    It seems simple, but I doubt it. The firmware fits the X number of units they make, so asking them to change it is a request that will probably be overlooked. What you can do is create an "Outside Line." We implement this structure at my company so that people coming in who are not part of the company can access the internet without endangering our internal network. You definitely have the set-up for this if you already have an internal network configured. Before you do that, however, I would suggest that you turn off any wireless signals/accessors within a reasonable vicinity of the device and plug it in hardwire to configure. Definitely one by one.
