you should be able to go here to find out all about your modem here.

login to your modem use the user manual and as long as you remember where to put the .xadsl I always get confused with them usernames and your password, you'll be away laughing.

Most likely reason for 2 PCs slowing connection is a plan with 128 kbps upload speed.

Xtra provide the WAN side public ip address via a DHCP server. You have no control over this and each time the router reboots it will get a different ip address unless you request a static ip address. If you want a static ip address than contact Xtra and request one https://www.telecom.co.nz/form/1,,5208,00.html. You will be charged extra unless on Pro plan.

Once you have a static ip address any router using the appropriate credentials, username and password, will always be given this address.

Correct, it won't change if already on static lease. Only settings apart from username.xadsl@xtra.co.nz and password are PPPoA VC MUX, VCI=100, VPI=0.
