Is it possible to change the LAN address of my DPC3825 to 10.10.100.1 mask 255.255.255.0?
The DPC3825 masks out the 192.168 from change.
Is there a software upgrade available to do this?
Is this possible?
Hi Craig, I haven't logged in and tried this myself but it should be doable. Keep in mind that you should keep track of all of the default settings before you make any changes.
You'll have to log into your modem first. Type 192.168.0.1 into your browser's address bar, follwed by username custadmin (all lowercase) and the password that can be found on the white sticker on your modem.
I would also recommend reading through the DPC3825. The relevant section for you starts on page 31.
I agree...SHOULD is the operative word.
When I do this 192.168 is blocked out and I cannot change it.
I think a software upgrade or something is required to do it.
We played around with one of our DPC3825's and it looks like this can't be changed in the settings after all. As this is in the firmware, we can't provide any way to change it.
The option for you is to bridge the DPC3825 in order to disable the router function and then use a separate router. If you do have your own router, let us know and we do can that for you!
I do not have a 2 port ethernet router right now but I could probably get one.
How long will it take you to put me into bridge mode?
Do you have another type of router where I can do this and can return the DPC3825?
Please advise on both questions.
We don't offer another modem/router that would allow you to make those changes to your LAN address at this time.
As for bridging your modem, this is something we can do in just a few minutes. If you decide to do this, just let us know here and we will send you a direct message to gather your account info to make the change. Keep in mind that we have ashaw-moderator on shift from 7 am to 10 pm each day.
What would my IP address change to if went to bridge mode?
IP address would change if you go to bridge mode yes, it would assign a new IP to the mac address of your router. DHCP for private IP's on the Cisco DPC3825 only works in router mode, when you bridge the Cisco DPC3825 modem, then your own router would use DHCP to provide your internal home network with private IP's (usually 192.x.x.x).

I understnd about DHCP on my side of the router.
I was wondering if DHCP would still work on the upstream side of the router or do I have to get a static IP address?
DHCP will still work just the same as it was, except your router would be assigning internal/private IPs within your home network instead of the Cisco modem doing that job. The public IP you get from us is still via DHCP, no need for a static.
I have a 2 port ethernet router on the way so I will require you to put me into bridge mode at some point. I am not sure when it will be here so I am not sure exactly when I need this done.
When you have your router and you've got it hooked up, let us know here and we'll take care of bridging the modem for you.
I now have a Cisco 1841 between the DPC3825 and my LAN.
Please put the DPC3825 into bridge mode and send me an email when you have done so.
I'll send you a direct message to confirm your account information first.

Does DHCP still work?
