Well I got my new Thomson TG585 router from Telecom yesterday, was quite excited to replace my aging Dynaling and Linksys WAP combo.

So I got it all hooked up, and went to change the IP so it matches that of my scope at home, ah where is that setting in the web page?

Uh oh CLI time, after half an hour I got the IP address changed.

Next up DHCP, nope not in the web GUI either, gave up setting it up via the CLI after an hour or so.

Is there an easier way?  I can see it is very flexible in config due to the extensive CLI, but it is nothing like anything i have used (there are minor hints of IOS there), why are not some of the more basic features available in the GUI.

Oh and yes I do want my own IP range, it need to play well with another one via a VPN, and I am avoiding NAT.

If you ring Telecom they can send you an email which will show you how to change the the IP address of the TG585 and also the DHCP range.  You need to export the user.ini file of the modem and make changes to the txt file.
